    Default WTB Vertical Mill in Melbourne

    As the title suggests.

    Size is a factor, I don't really have the lifting equipment to lift much more than a ton.

    Also, I don't have huge funds to put towards this, something around $1500 would be good.

    cheers.

    I saw your other thread and I might have something suitable for you.

    Herless SM1. Weighs about 500kg, maybe a little more or less.

    Itís a lot more capable than a mill drill in my opinion.

    Itís surplus to my requirements as I had an opportunity to buy a universal mill two years ago and I havenít used it much since. But would be willing to sell for about $1500.00.

    The mill is at my home workshop in Langwarrin. Iíve got a gantry to load onto a trailer etc.

    Cheers

    I'm not far at all from Langwarrin. If you need another set of hands let me know.

    Yes itís single phase. Belonged to a guy who used to make steam engines and only hobbyist use. Itís very well looked after and is mechanically in good condition. Made in Taiwan.

    Table size 180mm x 700mm and 3MT taper. I have a basic drill press vice with it. Worklight.

    Few 3MT holders that for a little extra could part with if you wanted.

    Few points Iíll mention. The mill will need to be put onto a base as itís too short to go straight down onto concrete. Iíve got it on a pallet at the moment. Belt driven, and slight vibration at some belt speeds. Long term if I were you Iíd the motor off and put a 3ph VFD onto it. Add a DRO and x-power feed as a project one day too.

    PM me and Iíll give you my number and if youíre genuinely interested and come take a look. Iíve been putting off selling it just due to being time poor but I think itís time I move some machines on.

    If you want some practical examples of what these can do I think doubleboost on YouTube uses one of these, don't take too many cooking tips though.

    Buy that machine. NOW.

    They are one of the good ones to own. About 2/3 the size of a B/port and very capable machines.

    Don't even stop to think about it provided the condition is good.

    Oh alright, but only because you insisted.
