Well, I got to aci machine Tool sales and service and the beaver wasn't too bad and still was a good deal but he had like eight bridgeports lined up. The beaver was a little big and the motor looked smaller than the bridgeport. So the guy gave me a deal on one of the series ones he had. It has the 2j2 head on it with variable speed and power downfeed. It also came with a power feed on the x that needs just a little work and glass DROs on the x and y but there missing the display but I have been looking and you can get one for pretty cheap. Even if its not the same brand all you have to do is change the pin out to match the machine. I ended up getting the mill for $1500.
Mark showed me around the place he had everything. CNC everthing he used to be an SOT and produce machine guns. He was working on a bowling ball cannon when I came he had the barrel in one of his CNC lathes. He put the mill on the back of my truck for me with a huge forklift. Then I went to cincinnati to eat at pappadeaux spent the night then headed back home.
To move the machine I used a 2 ton engine hoist and a come along. I backed my truck up the hill then put the lift up to the head removed it then put it on a dolly in garage. Then I took the ram off with the lift. After that the hardest part started I got some chain, bolts and washers and used the X that holds the ram to lift the rest. I backed my truck in my garage and lifted it off the bed then drove the truck out from under it. I got it all put together then a couple days later cleaned it up really good I don't have any pics of that but I will post them later.
