Looking good.
Your saddle ways look just like mine.
I'm actually thinking of selling my Sharp and replacing it with a PM833TV.
My small shop would be much happier with a smaller mill and the 833TV seems like a quality mill.
Me on the other hand. I plan to upgrade the shop for the tools. I retire in a year or two and plan to move to a place with a shop or build one to suit my needs. I haven't decided on a size yet if I Build. bigger is always better, no matter what size it will fill up.
Yes that looks like a nice mill. It would probably suit my needs most of the time. It would certainly be easier to move.

I did get around to making some table covers.

Just a minor update.
Its running... My buddy came over last night got it hooked up and programed the drive. I was up until midnight making a mess. I don't think I have had that much fun ever, as an adult.
It's true... Boys never grow up, their toys just get bigger and more expensive. :)

As it turns out. I would have ended up killing the VFD with chips. So I made a deflector. It also gave me a place to mount the Touch DRO box.
Just a piece of scrap PVC sheet.
