well i started thisd post on the mill for two resons furst off ther is plenty of bench top mills out ther but they all have problems i don.t need a big mill as you can see by the pics of my work place i have plenty of big toys to play with the second reson is watt can be a cheved in a home workshop with not a lot of spear cash. a long time a go you cud by mill kits dezined to be made at home to be fiteed on to lathes
if you have the cash you can by out but not all have a desposabal incum and yep things have becum much cheeper and a lot of things that once was made at home are gnaw got on line but if you only need two why by 10  but thats just me

well did a bit more to the mill today the handle for moving the quill was missing so had to make one had a rut in me old socket draw and fawned a 13mm socket to do the job had to cut this dawn to 8mm ha not a hope in hell normally the cheep sockets are made of toffee not this one had to mashen it to length once that bit was dun had to make a boss for it to fit in to dug out a lump of steel and turned it  dawn to 30mm OD then bored it out to 18mm so that the socket wood be a push fit then put a 10 degree angel on the outer edge so when the handles go on they come out at a angel marked off the center  then parted it off set it up in the mill and drilled the two holes for the handles drilled 5mm tap m6 made two handles out of 9mm bare turned dawn both ends to 6mm then threaded them m6 I estimated the  length  of the handles to be 120mm cut them to this length then taped the ends m8 for the balls to go on priest in the socket  in to the boss put the handles in then silver soldered them in place then cleaned it up and gave it a cote of pant right pics

Looking good so far Bob , well done 👍

Good idea offsetting the bar away from the hub to give you more clearance in use.
