Good day all, I recently joined, but read all the posts everyday. Have learned a lot by reading other people's posts.
I just acquired a very old Williams mill. It has a Milwaukee vertical attachment. Looks to be in very good condition.
It comes with a bunch of tooling and carbide cutters. I will post pictures on the weekend after I get it in my shop.
My questions, I'm guessing it weighs about 2000 pounds?
I have never heard of Williams, looks like maybe from the 40's or 50's ? It's a beast!
The Milwaukee vertical attachment , do these work fairly well?
Regards Martin

Milwaukee is Kearney & Trecker most likely. Top grade machinery at the time.

milling 1.JPG milling 2.JPG milling 3.JPG Here are a couple pictures of my new milling machine. Got it home yesterday and off the truck with my forklift . I have it just sitting in the middle of the shop until I can get it leveled and wired up. The last pic is my Famco 5 ton punch press. I also scored a Brown and Sharpe #2 surface grinder, a metal cutting band saw with blade welder, small offshore lathe, Grizzly milling machine with digital readout, step up transformer to 550 volts from 220 volts, tons of tooling and attachments, about a thousand pounds of bolts and punch dies .
