    Default Ever heard of a "Lion-L Universal Milling machine"?

    I saw a "Model 820 made in Taiwan" - can't find anything online - wondered if anyone knew the mills.

    Manufactured by "HOMGE MACHINERY" 1985

    thanks

    There are many "generic" mills and lathes made in Taiwan--chances are that's what you have. A picture or
    two would go a long way...

    AFAIK, Homge only made vises/workholding. Kurt knock off's that weren't TOO bad.

    HOMGE MACHINERY IND. CO., LTD.

    If it's the same company, this is their current line. You might Email them or see if there's a dealer more local to you and see if they have a manual or parts for it.

    Not a bad looking line of accessories....If'n they did make that Morpedite clusterflock machine tool (posted by the OP) years ago...i'll wager they don't want to admit it...

    Glorified square Column mill drill ! Pain in the ass to change speeds just like a mill/drill. Made the mistake 40 years ago buying a mill/drill won't repeat THAT !

    OMG good catch its a mill/drill! It was so big I didn't see it had no knee- I got sucked in by the DRO and the unknown name.

    It looks like a jig borer to me.

    Mix of Linley style Jig Borer and Mill. Looks to be basically bigger brother to Myford VMB. Short travel quill in housing that can be slid up and down the main column then locked in place.

    Going by the VMB that layout is somewhat sturdier and more accurate than the generic import square column mill but something of a PIA to use as general purpose machine.

    With the DRO fitted best thought of as a co-ordinate drilling machine with light milling capabilities. Half decent machine if you have the right sort of work for it. I know of folk who have a Myford VMB and consider the ease with which you can switch between short drills, long drill and milling cutters a good trade off for limited depth milling capabilities and inability to exploit larger cutters.

    Wasn't Lion-L the leader of the Thundercats?
