Default milling machine

I picked up this milling machine on the weekend .. a local clearance sale ..lots of stuff at giveaway prices

Anyway .. turns out is was made by CASH engineering in Richmond , Melbourne . They designed and made these during WW2 as a contract for the US forces here in Australia . Reverse LEND LEASE again . I don't have the vertical head attachment , this transforms the mill into a vertical mill ..very neat . Its single phase . Table power feed .

The company still exists today . amazing but true . This info came from the grandson of the founder of the business

Some big and heavy machines sold for almost nil.. the deceased estate of a live steam train enthusiast ..... bargain bonanza time MIKE
