Hi all, I've been interested in machining ever since i started watching Abom79, This Old Tony and AvE years ago. A few weeks ago I saw an Index Mill on eBay for the right price and I brought it home last weekend. Haven't been able to find out what model of Index this is. Numbers on the upper left way on the column read "38 19" Could this be a Index mill from 1938 (the year Index started) and the 19th mill they ever produced? Hopefully i learned a thing or two from all the videos I've watched on machining, but this is the first time I've ever had my hands on the knobs. The machine was in decent condition (I think) but it could definitely use some maintenance, mostly a good cleaning. The table, saddle and knee were loose and the grooves in the ways packed with grease. Screws for oil ports all over the machine had been painted over as well. I'm not planning to do a full rebuild at this point, just clean all the ways, make sure there's no rough spots them, and get all the oil ports clear. Then I'm hoping I can reassemble and see how the machine feels with clean ways and fresh oil. I'm hoping some fine folks on here will be kind enough to point out any mistakes I'm making in this process. This is all new to me so you won't hurt my feelings telling me I'm doing it all wrong. Thanks in advance to anyone reading, and especially anyone lending their advice!
