It does look like an oldie . It says it was the first model . But I think the the new models go over $3000.

I could use another anchor, two are useful if you want to stay a beam of the wind as you fish…

That’s about what I’d do with it since I have no knowledge of what it does or how it works!

Ironically, I am the one who purchased this item. It was a fluke I ran across this site while doing research on it. While it is not the ornamental mill as described (that would be the latter Woodchuck MA), it is a Woodchuck IRT-33. Although the 33 referred to the original length in inches, this one has 8’ foot rails. They do appear to be OEM. So in essence, it is an 8’ long fixed, indexable router table that is adjustable head and tail to create tapers. There were some gears and parts that came with it, but they appear to be for a Woodchuck MA. Maybe someone thought they could convert this into an ornamental mill. Possible, but the cost factor would be high unless a reasonably priced 8’ long feedscrew could be obtained. I had to straighted the mid brackets upon getting (appears someone might have stood on it). Make no mistake though, this is of heavy duty construction. The table rails are channeled steel, the adjustable table guides are steel, and the indexing plates are heavy gauge aluminum. I just finished building a base for it, and hope to have it attached and operational soon!

I guess I should clarify what I meant when I stated “not the ornamental mill as described” in my last post. While it is an ornamental mill, it cannot make spiral cuts (what many, including myself, think of with the term ornamental milling). But fixed positioning ornamentation should be a piece of cake.
