Milling Machine

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Milling Machine

Postby papermaker » Sun Mar 18, 2012 8:25 pm

The milling mahine has been operational for about 3 weeks now and I'm enjoying the heck out of it. Haven't really made much with it yet but running it and making lots of chips. There were a few thing that needed attention but nothing major.Spent about 4 hours yesterday making repairs to the retractable pin in the quill feed handle. The PO must have broken the pin and fixed it enough to make it usable but not right. Also made a couple chuck wrenches for my brothers Logan lathe.
Just plain fun and I still have all ten fingers as of today!

Excellent.... an old friend makes a quick change tool option. Don't think you need one, but clever adaptation for a production machine.
