    Default Small Horizontal Mill ID

    I recently picked up this small horizontal mill off Craigslist. It doesnít seem to have any manufacturers name / markings on it. Iím pretty sure the tag on the front is just a machinery dealer that sold it. Iíve donít some searching and looked through pictures of mills on vintage machinery but canít find anything that matches. Any idea on the manufacturer of this mill?

    I am curious what head you have. I have a similar P&W 3C mill.

    Thanks! It is identical to the one in the picture. Looking up Sheldon and Vernon I think thatís exactly what it is. Thanks for the help!

    Paul, I appreciate the offer. I have a small milling machine with a larger table than this that works great for me. My plan for this horizontal is to clean it up, repaint it and get it in good working order. Weíll see how much I use it vs a vertical mill. Thanks

    I think you'll find you'll soon be asking first "Can I do this on the horizontal?" I have a (well 2) Sheldons. They can do some heavy work for their size.
