A machinist buddy of mine spotted a mill at auction and let me know so i could bid on it. I had very little money so i placed a 180$ max bid and walked away with a legun ft-1 knee mill 2hp i think? Quite rusty but serviceable. I only paid 115$ out the door moving the 2600lb beast was a trick but i got her home. Picture shows her partly torn down for cleaning the knee is a bit tight all the travels work spindle and quill are in great shape power feed works and so dose the dro with a bit of cleaning and a vsd to run the 3 phase i might get away with a 400$ mill du
Auction Link removed Any idea what kind of anvil this is (cast iron or steel or steel plate), how old it is, and/or the manufacturer? I haven't seen it in person, and I'm wondering if I should bid on it prior to the auction ending tomorrow evening. This would be used by my husband who is a newbie and is making kukhri-sized knives/machetes. I could ask him, but I want to surprise him. Is this too small (width-wise) for his use? Thanks!

material - $22 time/labor - 8 hours reuse, re-purposed & recycled - $0 Wife happy - Priceless Ok, to begin my wife is originally from California & while she was not raised by hippies in a commune, she was taught early on to recycle and is constantly nagging suggesting that we "reuse, repurpose & recycle". She also enjoys dabbling in blacksmithing, throwing pottery, DIY, home improvement, etc. On various occasions she has discovered some unique, unusual and very inexpensive tiles & tile fragments (from ceramic to porcelain to slate & stone) in resale, antique, junk shops, yard sales & auctions. All very cheap or even free (made me happy). We find tile tables/furniture interesting and I suggested we make our own rather than paying retail. This is the process & results. I will gladly respond to any inquiries for details (I'm not good at writing instructions, she's the trainer not me). I've loaded the pictures in the order of the process (as I remembered to take them).
