    new to me machine day partially anyway

    I have been looking for a horizontal boring mill for a while and one finally came available about 350 miles away Im 2 trips into it and have 2 more to get it disassembled and hauled the good part is once its here I shouldn't run out of travels and table space for a while here is some pictures of the table of course a rain storm just came through. its cleaned up now, total weight will be around 40000 lbs but it was 13' wide so I had to disassemble it.

    We had a similarly sized Horizontal boring mill in our shop, it turned out to be my favorite machine.

    Im hoping its useful once its set up, right now, I have a clapped out cincy #3 vertical and 80% of what I try to do could either be done in a tight bridgeport or I run out of travel and height.

    Our Horizontal mill was a 4 inch Meuser, Full pendant control after the feed levers were set, it was capable of feeding EVERY AXIS on the machine at the same time. Buy or build an angle plate and also try to get your hands on a rotary table.

    it came with a 32 or 36" square rotary table and a home built 48" angle plate. facing head, the tail support and a pallet full of line boring bars so fairly well equipt but never everything of course.

    That's seriously gorgeous. Part of me wants to hit it with some clear poly and use it as the dining room table!

    That's awesome, did it have any mill holders or facing mills? Sounds like a nice relatively complete package. enjoy! You NEED some very high precision levels for setup, the ones we used to set up our mill were STARRETT, don't remember what model but were accurate to .00010 per foot, they were so sensitive that breathing on them would effect change in the bubble, had to set them & let EVERYTHING normalize together, ambient temperature will affect the level too, a good trammel may be ok too.

    Maybe want to look at some of bcbloc02 videos on you tube of his setting up a big boring mill.
