    ecdez,

    I think you did a wonderful job on the mill...and did it in record time to boot. You are very humble and didn't brag or boast, just did exactly what you set out to do and it worked very well in my estimation. Good job.

    I see you have the dial caliper off zero needle problem...….me too, I like the dial calipers because they don't run out of battery power when you want to use it like the digital ones do, but the needle zeroing at the side or bottom is a pain.
    It drives me crazy. Well, crazier I guess.

    Looks like a worthwhile project to me.Now the machine is running you can easily find things to do with it and the depth of knowledge you gained from doing the work will be a useful resource for your future projects.
