Hey guys and gals, I still have my Standard Modern 13X40 lathe in my shop, and am slowly working on it, but no new updates on that. But, I did acquire a 1975 Burke Powermatic Millrite this last weekend and will be working on restoring it as well. My time is limited due to my job taking up a lot of time, as well as 3 boys playing baseball. Hopefully I can make good progress on this mill and the SM lathe so I can get some eye candy up for everyone. But just to show some starting pic's here she is. I picked this mill up for a very good price and it was covered in dust and surface rust. I started to clean up the surface rust and found that the ways are not worn at all, the screws have zero wear as well, and all in all this thing looks like it wasn't used too much. It is the largest of the 3 table option at 8"X36", and it also has the extended knee which offers 13" of Y movement. It also has the fine feed for the quill(not my favorite aspect, but not a huge deal). It had the quill power feed, but someone removed the motor and controller(I've already purchased replacements...not original, but they will work wonderfully). It came with a full set of Chinese collets. It is an R-8 model, which is nice. I has a 1hp single phase motor, which works well for my small shop area. I will put a few pic's in my next post, when I get home from work(sorry for delay...my work doesn't allow photobucket).
