    my first go at a milled housing

    hi peeps
    this is my first go at a milled housing i had a go on a milling machine many moons ago at collage 26 years ago and it wasnt a real go on one it was more like have a look this is a milling machine. so when troutie had offered this small clarke mill to some one on an other thread i asked if it was still for sale 100 later i had myself a mill.so the first few bodys will be a learning curve i have an idea what i want to do and go from there same as i never read manuals i jump in feet first there is still some trimming to do.

    That's a terrific housing for your first attempt. You have driven me over the edge. I'm off to buy a mill. Any suggestions on what mill to buy?

    welcome back thwang, haven't heard from you for a while.

    That looks really nice, well done.

    On a side note I might add that this hasn't helped curb my obsession with finding a small, relatively cheap mill .

    Looking good.
    Especially for a first build on the mill.
    Looks good, even for a second try ,or third or...............
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.

    Very nice, and good motivation for me to get working on my own first milled beast...
    The study du jour: can one's reputation be artificially inflated by simply putting a request for rep in one's sig?
