Talk about tight space...
The first time my mill homed to the x limit it dented my wife’s car. She got a lot of honey do mileage out of that mistake! I look as tight space as less floor to clean chips after every job!??
Limitations aren't always a bad thing. Probably why the home shop is more fun than work Make whatever you can dream up, w/ no boss looking over your shoulder (wife notwithstanding).
I still need to figure out where it's gonna go. I doubt it'll go where the Rockwell sat (without disappearing through the floor, anyway). Nevertheless, I'm gearing up (trailer hitch, portable A-frame/gantry, chain hoist, etc) to be able to dismantle/transport/reassemble a BP-sized mill. I now regard it as an essential experience -- a paying of dues, as it were. Gonna be some fun (and folly, no doubt)
PS -- I might carry this train of thought over into a new thread. A BP-shaped object has caught my eye, and the price seems right... I've been negotiating. The problem is it's over 100 miles away, and I'm still waiting on my new trailer hitch
