Publisher Comments:

The design of this horizontal milling machine is chosen with the developing home shop especially in mind. There is more detail than in the lathe and shaper but we are still using the same simple methods. All of the castings are within the capacity of the charcoal foundry using the one quart pot. Additional discussion on pattern-making and molding assure that the project is within the grasp of beginners. There are detailed instructions for machining the parts and the miller itself can do some of the operations on its own parts.

The machine is very rigid in its construction. Its lathe-like characteristics make it very versatile. Included accessories make it possible to do large diameter turning, boring and facing jobs. It can even be used to make its own cutters. An ideal supplement to a shop with a small lathe.

The work table is 2 3/8" x 12" with a 3/8" "T" slot and it travels a full 12". The carriage travels 6 1/2" in line with the spindle with the tailstand in use and 8 1/2" with it cleared away. the spindle can be raised as much as 6" above the work table. There are eight speeds in two ranges from 43 RPM to 2430 RPM, and the transmission is designed to follow the vertical travel of the spindle without changing belt tension.

It is the milling machine that will enable you to add change gears to your lathe and to do other exotic machining operations not possible in many small home shops. There is little beyond your capacity when you complete this project.
