This little mill is heading to a new home soon, so I thought I should post some photos before it's gone. Made by Holland in Fitchburg, Mass probably in the 1939-1940-something range. It's a very compact layout and a heavy machine for it's size. The upper section is a massive L shaped casting.

Brown & Sharpe #7 taper.
Quill 2.5" diameter - extends about 2.75
The head rotates left or right up to 90 degrees

Table is 26" x 8" x 3" thick
X: 14 1/2" travel
Y: 8" travel
Z: spindle to table minimum 2 1/4", maximum 11 1/4"
Lead screws have opposable nuts to remove backlash

Speeds are: 200, 300, 400, 500; 600, 900, 1200, 1500; 1650, 2450, 3300, 4375
The upper pulleys give 4 speeds from the motor. The lower pulleys change between the three speed ranges.
Single phase 1/3 hp reversible motor - currently running on 115 can also run on 230.
Estimated weight is 1100 lbs +/-

Looks like a really well built machine. Great size for those with space or power limitations. Did you upgrade to something larger? Mike

Not larger. Pretty much the same thing, but with better features. Here's a couple pics for comparison from when I first got the newer one. As you can see the photos above were a trick to give the impression that I had a clean garage. The new one is a Swedish Mattsson & Zetterlund VF600.

Very nice mill for a hobbyist, seems too nice to sell. The new one must be even more special. How about a guided tour at some point?

I'll put up a separate thread for the other one. Here are a few pics of the mill when it was apart. Should anyone out in internet land need to take one apart I have loads of photos I can send you. If I don't take pics along the way then I'll end up with "spare" parts when it's reassembled.

Good looking mill. Is that an electro mechano drill press. In one of the pics? Best wishes,

Really cool !
Looks like a tiny baby bridgeport, very similar to a BP M head original.

Yes, it's the 601 model. It needs some work, though. The Reeves drive isn't Reeves-ing properly and the speed selector is way off. It should be a very nice drill press once it's fixed.
