unfortunately youtube does not work on my machine - incompatible security most times I don't even get a http response packet...

google did something to their backend a couple months ago and any site that uses the google engine is blank to me.

Awesome!!   But, I am jealous, I've been wanting one myself.  Got the HF mini lathe not long ago but a mill would make things a lot easier.

Congrats!!

I might know of a decent size Sheldon with complete and I mean complete tooling for a real good price if it's still there. It may be 3 phase though.
If you run across a Heavy 10 up your way please let me know, my 9" isn't quite big enough in the through hole.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like.

I have the Grizzly G0484 mill and G4003 lathe.  I'm happy with both.  I added a DRO to the lathe but not the mill yet.  Would love to have it on the mill.
