I acquired a bench top milling machine built by B. C. Ames in Waltham Massacheusetts. Unfortunately there is no model or serial numbers. I believe it is a frankenmill converted from horizontal and fitted with a vertical spindle.

Does anyone have info on these mills?

I believe it is a circa 1910 Ames Precision Bench Milling machine with the vertical parts fabricated by a very skilled mchinist.
I can be reached at VE3IAU@protonmail.com

Where do you purchase urethane belting for a 9 inch South Bend in Toronto?
Hello again. Sorry for the repeat below.
I have tried to start a conversation but it doesn't like my spam-like (?) content, or perhaps it is because I am a new member.

I believe we have contact!
Hi Brent
I would like to contact you about a problem I am having with my SM 1020 rebuild. The ABC gear set binds on the intermediate shaft but I cannot see a cause. I have decided to remove the shaft and inspect, and would like your input on the steps. May I send you an email with more information, as here I am limited to 420 characters?
