Mini lathe (and mill) discussion.

Have an opportunity to pick up a Benchmaster mill. Anyone know anything about these?

Went and picked up the mill and came home with way too much stuff. I finally got the mill set up as a horizontal mill for now. I need to do some work to it before it's ready to use. The KO Lee tool and cutter grinder also needs work before I can use it. I also brought home some forging equipment and lots of other stuff. I found a nice little Buck 4" six jaw chuck as well.

Yep, it was part of the estate sale. I had help getting everything hauled around as they are heavy parts. I got all the gibs adjusted and the table moves very smoothly. He also had two Myford Super 7 lathes that were over my price range. One was brand new.
