Re: miller lathe?

The question on which mill to get is a tricky one as it depends how big the materials you intend to machine. I remember an article in a model engine mag that pointed out there’s more flat matching than turning when making a locomotive, the suggestion was that a good milling is more desirable. One solution is a sturdy lathe with a milling table attached to the cross slide as good solution. There are some good used machines available. I have a Colchester student lathe and a Herbert OV mill (1941) both can produce good accuracy with good technique.
