Exactly! I have a contact in Laredo looking for a mill to face CAT heads on. The head he showed me had to be at least 4 foot long almost foot high. He couldn't understand why he couldn't do that on a Bridgeport clone mill.you could resurface 3408 Caterpillar heads all day long in that K&T
i can't imagine the machine flexing very much when cutting, it's made for expedient metal removal as well as being beautiful
Only worth scrap price is misogynistic; there are shops world wide pulling accurate work out of these every day.Nice ol mill back in it's day. Probably still nice! Only worth what scrap price brings you today. Around 6000 lbs.
I ran one back in my younger years that was a No. 5 size. Very intimidating! I did not like running it! At all!
