    Mill/lathe

    My lathe mill, made from a kit that is no longer available. Ways are 3/4" hydraulic cylinder rods set in grooves machined in heavy 6" square tubing. More work still needed on this machine but it is already very useful. Table and headstock bearing housing, hand wheels and tailstock are cast iron in homemade foundry by kit developer.
