It looks like your garage is, or soon will be tilting to the left! LOL

That is one big mill. Nice table saw, too!

Yes indeed Lee. What I didn’t include was the other side of the left wall. You see, it’s a three car garage and in the single car bay are my welders, horizontal band saw, welding table, and drill press.

I still need to get a jointer, planer, and bandsaw.

I am really impressed by your ingenuity and design ability. I was researching my saw’s set up and you introduced me to the concept of integrating PT work flow. I was thinking about gettin one of your devices. However, I still need so much equipment that I have to dedicate any budget to that area of acquisition. Glad to hear from you!!

Crashn:

Yeah it’s a nice piece of equipment to have. I can surface anything as well as design and build stuff made of metal to within .0005. I also have a lathe that goes with it.

My Bridgeport can’t cut that much in any one pass. For instance with stainless the feed is way slow. If you want to hog lots of metal with a manual mill you need one that’s good sized; for instance a Kearney Trecker. BTW these are going for the price of the iron (scrap).

I found this illustration of what I mean. Whereas .01 is a lot for my machine, this one can handle .10 like nothing (that’s 303 stainless I haven’t done any 304 yet). At the end of the video it shows a pass that’s at least .5. The material is probably HR but still . . . .

Hi Mike:

I wouldn’t mind being in Norway . . . . for the summer. I don’t do snow or ice.

Nice to hear from you.

Hi Jon, We don’t get too much snow and ice where I live on the southwest coast, but we don’t get much sun either. We do have an abundance of fresh air though, and it is a pleasure to see nature with the great clarity offered by the clean atmosphere here.
