My mill is the same as a KBC VM-22, just a bit older. Any one have a power feed they can part with? Maybe left over from a CNC conversion or just sitting in a box under the work bench.
Does your mill have two or four bolts attaching the feed? A pic would be appreciated.I have a very similar mill, mine was a “Go Well” from 1970. I used an Align power feed. You can find them on Amazon or EBay cheap if you bide your time. I got mine from Busy Bee. Could send some pics if you’d like. I will look around though as I think I know a lady who has a power feed that needs a home here in Hamilton, Ontario.

A horizontal power feed should work for it - but you may have to make some kind of an adapter. ALSGS is a good power feed - when compared to Align I don't see any difference - even the name is similar. I am not sure about much cheaper clones.
Look how clean everything is - you sure you are even using the machine - its far cleaner then my stuff after I clean metal and grease.
Need to buy your used tools as they are most likely better than new!!!!LOL, my photos attached above is from when I first uncrated this mill/drill and set it up in my shop. Took me 2 hours to clean all the chicken fat from it before taking the pictures. Yes I always clean up my machines after use which plays a huge part in overall safety and yes that's my training showing after years of military jet aircraft good housekeeping. Just my way of doing things. Both my lathe and mill/drill have heavy black cotton covers basically keeping them dust free. Bill
