Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and looking for the introduction thread. So I guess I'll start here with my introduction of myself. If this is the wrong thread please let me know. Anyway, I was a machinist for Lockheed back in the 80's. I ran mills and lathes and some other machines. Now that I am retired, I bought a Grizzly G0704 vertical milling machine. I've been messing around with it for quite a while now and have made some pretty cool stuff with it. Then about 3 or 4 months ago I found a great deal on a old Atlas horizontal mill and a Craftsman 101-27440 lathe you know the 12"x36" with the quick change gear box. I am currently in the process of rebuilding the Atlas horizontal mill. Which when I bought it, it was covered in saw dust and needed a good cleaning and was told from the guy who I bought it from. That it had not been cleaned or working in over 35 years. I'll post some pictures here soon so you can see what I am talking about. The Craftsman Lathe is in a lot better condition and probably only needs a good cleaning. I'll also send some pictures of the lathe so you can see what I am talking about. Just glad I found this forum so I can learn more about these old machines.
