Look what showed up today!

Still have some more cleaning and DRO's to install. Also have a small issue, so I will be calling them in the morning. Impressed with the unit, fit and function look good. Instructions for the power feed are pretty vague, but it's a simple install and easy to figure out.

Maybe the PF was a competency test? ;)

But it looks like you passed with flying colors. Nice looking little mill. Have fun with that thing. :)

Looks good! I'm interested in how you like it once you get it going. I'm still waiting on my 30MV...

Your workbench and shop look way too organized and clean. Some chips flying all over the place will fix that in no time!

(Nice machine... good luck. Be safe and have fun).

So one of the reasons I chose this mill was for the reputation of PM's customer service. As stated, I found an issue with the mill. I know that's a vague statement, but we're still working out the details. What I can say is that one phone call and a couple emails later, replacement parts are headed my way. Matt wants to make it right, no question. Although I will have to wait a bit to make chips, I appreciate their customer service.

I will keep everyone posted...

Update.... New parts arrived last week. Matt sent new spindle, bearings and races, locking washer and jam nut, as well as new drawbar. We came to the conclusion that the bore in the spindle for the drawbar was somehow not square to the spindle. It was off enough that yhe drawbar would not thread into a collet. New parts solved everything and we're making chips! As a plus, I now have a few extra parts...

I must say that Matt did not hesitate to resolve the spindle problem. I would recommend PM to anyone who asks. So far happy with how yhe machine functions, though I've played with a few small practice projects. I haven't run a manual mill since the early 90's....so practice is in order.....
