and a home made 2 x 48 inch belt grinder with a baldor motor. I only wanted the belt grinder to start with. But the deal on all three made it too goood to pass up.

they will all need cleaned- likely paint but should be servicable and even canidates for restoration, we will see as I get into them eventually...

Now the hard part is deciding what needs to go find another home. I do not need so many lathes or horizontal mills!

that might be leaving me. The unimat for sure, the atlas may have to stay for a bit while I go through the south bend.

don't have pictures yet, can get some if you are serious. its buried n i am swamped...

I had another I shipped and would not be afraid to although it was expensive at 50-60 dollars. I mounted it to a plywood base and boxed it up real well. Got there fine. That is what I was gonna do if I ebayed it like the last one.

that mill looks to be in pretty good shape.
I just finished restoring it's cousin. Took about 2 months, couple of evenings a week.
If you need bearings for the handwheels, I bought too many. They were cheap.

I'd love to find a horizontal to go with it.
