    Should be picking up the mill and tooling in the morning. I'm looking forward to getting it cleaned up (and probably painted) and moved into my little shop. It's in pretty good shape, in a pro shop for many years (A few feet from a Hardinge HLV). Some TLC and I'll have a nice mill to go with my little Logan lathe. Love this old iron.

    I intend to document some of the effort. It's running on single-phase now, so there will be a new motor and VFD, and I love the TouchDRO setup I installed on the lathe, so I'll be doing that (I'm wondering how I'll like using one tablet for both machines). It will be fun.
