    Default Help identifying mill

    Im having a tough time identifying this mill. It was in the middle of restoration when the owner died and has since been left to rust. So naturally, all of the labels are missing.

    I believe it's a kearney and trecker because of the milwaukee on the side, hence my post in this section. Sorry if it's not in the correct place.

    Any help us appreciated.

    Yep, "Milwaukee" was the brand name of milling machines manufactured by the Kearney & Trecker Co.

    Also page 64-65. Measuring table might tell you if model number was No 1 1/2B, or No 2 1/2B.

    Wow, that's awesome. I didn't think the machine was quite that old.

    Feels worth the $150 I paid for it. Even if it never gets restored.

    I can handle that! Might give me some extra motivation.

    There are a couple of major issues though.
    All of the parts for the x axis are missing including the screw.
    The handwheel for the knee is broken off and missing.
    Also, the pump is likely bad, someone appears to have bypassed it.

    I guess it's nothing that can't be fixed though.
