    It is exciting!
    Seems like I've been saving for this forever.
    Kind of an odd shaped little arrangement...kids are gone & the wife & I are in 900 sq ft.
    I've got a small music room where I jam with some friends plus the git shop...This is my last available corner...lol...I'm out of floor space...the rest of the house is her domain.

    As Y'all know, for quite some time, I've been saving my lunch money for a small benchtop milling machine.
    Well, I've got my dollars together & am ready to buy.

    Building a little cubbyhole area to set it up in & to do my builds...get them out of the clutter & busyness of the git shop.
    Going to do some shelves on the back walls this weekend.



    Drier/ regulator for my air system.

    Thanks, Bill.
    In my time on this board, I've noticed that you frequently offer quite a wealth of information on various subjects.
    Much appreciated...your willingness to share.
    Agreed on the subject of forgings & strength.
    On the quick change, just looking for different visual approaches to the parts I'm building.

    Quick change rear ends
    In the 1:1 world, does anyone make a machined billet quick change center section?
    Did a google & Winters, champs & the rest all seem to be cast items.
    I'm cutting billet style block & heads, in aluminum, for my coupe & have been thinking a machined housing for the irs quick change would blend right in, visually.

    Nice work!
     
    In this pic...do you use a circular saw blade for separating the part from the remainder of the bar stock?

    That's a nice motor collection.

    Sorry for lack of contact.
    My mom has been a hospice situation...in another state.
    Being there for her & here for work & the house payment...tricky, recently..
    Appreciate the comments.
    I'll be back.

    Any pics of your setups on the mill?

    Nice!
    Did I read some time back that you now have a lathe to go with the mill?

    Nice!  How many sq ft?
    Going to have it under roof & tight before snow?

    Hey Scott. 
    In the photo above your post, you can see a heavy radial ball bearing, at the bottom of the spindle, that absorbs side loads.
    I checked the side play on the spindle with a dial indicator before I began cutting on that first side cover & then again later & it was staying the same.  So I figure it's ok to proceed with caution. Very slow feed rates to keep side loads to a minimum.
    I've got a deal working on one of my bass rigs...fender jazz with duncan active pickups, carvin 600 w head & an avitar neo speaker cab...lateral transfer of funds to sherline for one of their vertical mills.
    Tim has one & speaks very highly of it's quality & features.
    I figure I've done gone stark raving mad over this stuff & I'm really digging the machining process & the mental challenges associated with it, so might as well do it right!

    Cut a couple of plugs off of a piece of round barstock from the salvage yard.
    Bandsaw is giving me good square cuts.



    Normally turning to spec diameter on a piece of stock is done on a lathe.
    I need to know how to accomplish that with this.

    I've got my spindle speed up to 2540 rpm & that smoothed things out a bunch.
    Looks more wavy than it feels.



    LOL, now that's a gangley lookin stack a stuff there, idnit??
    But I'm having fun, so leave me alone with my madness.

    In the background, a couple of cheap, busted up old acoustics of no value, that I just don't have the heart to pitch them into the dumpster...they're just there to add visual texture to my shop.
