Re: want a milling machine

Harbor Freight has a round column one for the lowest price you can even get a! 20% off the price coupon, 99% of those little Mills are made from the same castings! But I found a beautiful Bridgeport 48" table power feed, digital readouts, not worn out but minus the head for $900

Re: Round Ram Upgrade

The ram will not rotate I have the J head round Ram. I've used 5 inch long End Mill's 1.5" diameter, on a V Ram rang like a bell !! Same setup on round Ram no ringing and better finish. I've been able to take heavier Cuts also on a round Ram, I also have three V Rams.
