Please tell us that you mis-typed earlier and got it for 400 at least, not 4000??

I think I got a good deal. Georgia isn't a good state to shop for used machine tools of any age.

ORF,

You really need to stop reading the local ‘For Sale’ adverts.

It’s getting bad for your wealth

Are you getting the the old lathe as well or just the mill?

Then quit looking at Georgia and expand your horizons a little.

You haven’t said what you paid for the mill, but after seeing the pics, knowing it’s an old round column mill, regardless of what it comes with, it’s a 500-1000 mill at tops.

No-one uses them anymore. I’d rather have a shaper in a shop over a horizontal mill.

Plenty of old junk, I mean vintage equipment here in FL! I'll buy you a beer or a coffee as you're passing through but don't ask me to help you lift or move anything!

Looks like a worthy addition to your museum! But if you're happy, I'm happy! Seriously...

I used a mill like back in my machinist days working on airplane stuff. Didn't use that mill too much, we finally got a mill that wasn't worn out or 70 years old. Nice having to hold .001" tolerance on a mill with .070" slop on the table feed.

I still have the Gorton to compliment this one.

I haven't been able to power up the K&T in my shop yet and make chips but everything seems fairly tight and less slop then with the Gorton.

If I had a bigger VFD id have it running.
