    Put a dial indicator on your carriage and measure how far the tool is moving in when you adjust your dial. That will tell you exactly how far it's moving in per cut.

    Induma 1-S weight of base only?

    I picked up an Induma 1-S milling machine. It's totally broken down into major components. The base is totally stripped (no turret, knee/table, etc.).

    Does anyone know what the base alone weighs?...

    One thing to check is verify that the motor is wired for 220 volt, not 440. Use the tag on the motor and check the motor's connections.
