    Vevor knee mill X-axis power feeds <$200

    I would check the Vevor store on aliexpress , I think there was a $20 difference in my favour when I bought my bs-0, and it still shipped from the same place in BC. (although I did look up the AS-250-150 and the Vevor web site has the better price this time)

    WTB: looking for a vertical head for a Victoria / Elliott universal mill (U0)

    Just wondering if anyone has seen or comes across the vertical head attachment for a Victoria Elliott U0 ( or one that looks close, as they were interchangeable between models ) IIRC there are two versions, the direct mount: and the step up step out type: Figured would mention here in the...

    I didn't know I needed it. Still not sure :P 6x48 / 12" belt disc sander

    I had to buy the pivot points that attach to the disc table, I will most likely machine some aluminum plate to match the original tables, Either need to find the measurements or just make 'em up as I see fit.

    I didn't know I needed it. Still not sure :P 6x48 / 12" belt disc sander

    This wilton belt / disc sander followed me home a month or two a go. The posting was a good price and it was only 20 min old, so it met all the requirements. What sealed the deal was the chance my grandfather and uncle may have used it as they both used to work at the old Rockwell international...

    I have a first generation I7 / xeon (1366) from 2010 running windows 11 nicely. You do have to change some registry entries to allow it as it doesn't have tpm2.0 or a video card that is on their approved list. But those with an older system and no special software / hardware, its is a doable thing.

    Modern Mill, Edmonton, $400

    I've done my part within the last year with my Victoria Elliott U0 mill for the same price, although I didn't get a vertical head with it. This is an even better deal. someone else will have to buy this one (did get a sweet vise and extra arbors, so no complaints :P)

    Set screws for aluminum plate

    The threaded rod is easy enough to get , but I'd hate to spend the time making 650 screws with them, even with just a flat head slot cut :P

    Set screws for aluminum plate

    Just my .02 c but would it be possible to source aluminum screws ? I know I've seen a selection at home depot and at my work, that or cheap titanium from somewhere like Ali express? I know is metric, but just to give an idea metric titanium set screw or there is the cadmium (example)

    Looking for lathe drive belt size

    a bit late to the party and by no means sure, but it has a passing resemblance to a gt2 / gt3 /... belt seen a bunch in 3d printing and such. example of gt3 belts hard to tell without measurements but even the EV5GT looks close

    Horizontal milling machine $400

    Bit of a picture dump but it is now home and next week I can get it out of the trailer. Super pumped to start working with it and Dave the seller was awesome from sale to loading ( I mean who has a fork lift in their garage?? I now have goals .)

    Horizontal milling machine $400

    Assuming there is no catch, loading the trailer should be easy with the fork lift on site, unloading at home with engine hoist and pump truck should be doable.

    Horizontal milling machine $400

    Sigh. Going to look at it tomorrow :D . Other buyer has ducked out so will keep posted. Figure it can't be any worse than moving the lathe, much better center of gravity. Getting it on the trailer should be easy.

    Tool I didn't realize everything was a Fluke

    My daily driver is also a fluke 287, have yet to use the bit that talks to the computer, but its there. It's nice when work shells out for the good stuff. (Im much too cheap otherwise)
