I got this mill from an old gent who had retired, he bought it new, but after he sold his business he put this mill outside for a few years unprotected from mother nature, It was in very bad shape as you can tell from the photos below, I gave him $50.00 for it.
Then the restoration began, Every nut ,bolt was removed, I stripped it down to the bare metal, It was then primed and painted with 3 coats of machine grey, All machined surfaces was cleaned by electrolysis, All new AMERICAN made bearings including the matched spindle bearings and a new motor.
It runs like a new toy
