    Question Question

    Hello all.

    I have been a member for years, just never had a reason to post anything. Until now.
    A friend is giving me a mill. It isn't CNC. Just a manual mill. With a powered X feed. It's a 1985 JET Model #JVM-830-1. It looks to be 90% complete. It does need a motor and a good cleaning. All the axis move as they should and I don't see any major damage to the bed. I don't plan on using it for a business. Just a toy to mess with now and then.
    I am also trying to find a manual for it with no luck.

    Is it worth my effort? How hard is it to find parts if needed?


    Thanks, Andrew

    Are you planning to convert it to CNC?

    No. It will be a toy to mess with now and then.
