I'm missing the horizontal milling support for my Trans World Steel VHM-728.
it's a mill that has both horizontal and vertical spindles.
although i don't have a present need to cut anything on the horizontal spindle at this time, i'd like to be ready for the inevitable need in the future.
i found a hunk of 6 x 6 x 1-1/4" 6061 to use for the purpose of arbor suport
i squared up the plate in the vertical mill spindle with a very nice 1-1/4' TPG 3 inserted endmill
(member Mutt, graciously sent the TPG endmill with another very nice inserted shell mill in trade for a drum switch, i had lying around- Thanks Again Mutt!)
then started the process of layout of the dovetails, and machining the dovetails

first fit up

after final dovetail fit

thanks for looking, plenty more to come!
