    I want one of those parts washers, I got the tub, but if I steal the O.L.'s hitachi wand for the vibes she'll be pissed.

    I definitely did a lot of head scratching and put this tool in the corner when I bought it--it's a large fly cutter, originally made for lightening model T flywheels--and I think that's all this mill was ever used for. It's about 10in dia, 3/4in thick; has a taper attachment cut into it, it has so much oomph that it'll cut 40thou one pass in aluminum on a two horse single phase motor. I use it to face castings:

    Thanks guys, I'm pumped it's a fun gig. I even got ran off by the local pattern maker, this 80 year old Kool smoking Kraut told me I didn't know what the fuck I was doing. I had the last laugh it cast and fit fine right off the line on 1st prototype. I'll post the molds some time, they're 24x36 inches and I bet they're about 400lbs rammed up on the cope/drag each, far too big to pour in the garage. I'm almost done with the outer plate but my scroll saw broke with about 99% done.
    I also know the draftsman that worked in South Bend's prototype shop, he designed those South Bend mills. They weren't successful in working around Bridgeport's patents so the majority of these still around were prototypes or 1st run--I don't think they did production runs for this full size shop model--later they made smaller single phase units that could be disassembled and carried down into basements that utilized the lathe power feeds, taiwan copied those. The same guy is about 90 years old, had polio but they caught it in time when the vaccine first came out and he was cured.
