A GOOD friend managed to acquire a mill to use in my brothers work shop.  We moved out a wooden bench, fabbed a metal bench and set up the mill today.  After lunch we'll finsh up with some shelving and wire it up.  It is an ENCO model 105-1300      Rick

Handier than wire pliers!  Almost no limit to part fabricating with the mill and a lathe.

That will be an invaluable piece of equipment when fabricating new parts! I wish I had a small bench top model like that!

When I was in the service my shop was next to the machine shop. It was really interesting to watch what could be made of a chunk of steel-aluminum or whatever flavor of metal and to see what the finished product would be.

First thing we did was reconfigure some T-nuts to fit the mill table and vise.    This corner of the shop has become the metal-fab area.

Yeah! nice picture of that corner of the Shop. He didn't show you everything that used to be in that corner that I now have to find a place for somewhere else in that already getting crowded shop. :wallbanging:  All in all it will be a good trade off just to have the mill there. :thumbs:

Nice. Why can't you move you're shop a little closer?
