So today I purchased a new to me, very old Standard Engineering Works #2 (I think), horizontal milling machine. It is a little rough around the edges, but it is mostly all there. The only information I have been able to find is a few pictures on Vintage Machinery dot org. I was wondering if anyone has ever used one or seen one for that matter. I know it has a Brown and Sharp #9 spindle, 12 spindle speeds and four x axis feed speeds. It has a single over arm, and a 7 x 29ish inch table. Oh and.the most important part, it's REALLY HEAVY!!! I'm guessing about 1,200 pounds, or so... I will get some pictures as.soon as it is off the trailer.
