    He's killing me too. I don't have the room or need for a horizontal mill, but he's less than an hour away from me here in Altoona. If I had a bigger shop, I'd be right there.

    That is a nice machine. I love the Packard Motor Company property badge.

    Alas, it's too big for my shop too.

    I hope you find a good home for it.

    Thanks Tom. I think I will go with the 25hp unit and hopefully only have to do it once for the whole shop.

    So going a lot bigger than necessary on a rotary phase converter that uses capacitors is not advisable? Or is that why the manufacturers suggest doubling the rating of large loads like CNC...

    I went to look at it today. The seller seems like a good guy. However, there is one big downside to this mill along with a couple of more minor things.

    First the positive. The mill seems to...

    I really thought about it since it's about a 3.5hr drive. Space in the shop is tight though. It is one of those things. I "might" have a use for it in the future. I don't right now though.
