Default Traded for this..

Is that a CINCINNATI 2MI horizontal milling machine?

I have a 2MI vertical at work. It is a beast.

I was telling the boss if I could find a 90 degree head for it, then I could do more work in house instead of out sourcing it. We just had to send a 6” diameter chrome plated rod out to have 6 holes drilled and tapped one end to hold the piston onto it for a big Caterpillar 977 loader (I think) being 5’ long, I didn’t have a good way to do that.

Sad part is, it has protective cardboard sleeve being shipped out in a wooden box. Coming back in, they did not put the cardboard back on, and we found several scratches and dings in the rod, looks maybe from rolling in the box.
It should be ok, but we are not happy about it.

Anyways, I found a mill similar to yours on EBAy with an index table for about $4500, and the boss shot me down saying we do not have the room for it. I was hopeful for a bit.
