Were I work has been getting rid of stuff they no longer use much any more to make room and I was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time to get a hold of one of the 3 manual mill’s they were getting rid of. I have yet to start getting it wired up to us it but when I do I plan to build bolens parts you cant find or you could build with a mill like this. When I am 100% ready to start making parts I will let you all know.

It's not in the pics but it also came with digital readout.

That looks like an older model, but it also looks like it's in fantastic shape! Nice score Wilbur!

How much tooling did you get to go with it? Now you need a lathe and a surface grinder,maybe throw in a horzional mill. Now you can retire and just make Bolens parts and have time to use your tractors.

Oh my gosh....been wanting a Bridgeport for years! I have my old Cincy end mill, but that Bridgeport has WAY more capabilities. My table is fixed verically, so I have a VERY limited height of work. Congrats on the new tool (toy)....you lucky dog!

:thumbs: That's a nice looking lil knee mill, as long as the gibs are tight you can do some nice stuff with that.
