Has anyone bought one of the vertical milling attachments for a mini lathe that are made in India and sold on eBay? I've got one arriving on Thursday of this week. Took a couple of weeks for it to arrive. FedEx must have hired someone to swim it to the States.
I guess I'm looking for some idea of how easy it is to connect to the cross slide on my machine and hints like that.

I haven't seen one of those. Could you post a link?

It got here today!! It looks good to me. Appears well made. Needs a little smoothing of some of the sharp corners. The gibs feel smooth but a little tight. I'm happy! Christmas in February.
And it appears to be identical to the one that Steve Jordan is using in his youtube video "Double Swivel Vertical Milling Slide For The Chinese Mini Lathe"
He shows all his steps to make up a mounting plate for it. I've already ordered the steel plate on eBay.

Here's a link to the eBay listing.

I ordered the non swiveling one and it seems to be worth the money to me. Haven’t gotten the base fabricated yet to use it, but I think I’ll be happy with it and saved $350 compared to buying an Atlas one!

After having your milling slide a few months have you used enough to give a review?
