Me too. Maybe it's just because I learned on them first. Most shops just had a lathe guy, and you sent your stuff to him, and made everything else yourself

I still keep my hand in the trade working with this little old Jet bench mill, the mill was made in the early 70's and for its size if you don't push it hard it will do some decent work. Here I have it setup to mill the clearance for a V-Belt on the front cover of an experimental Ural engine.
I had an Enco in the early '80s, mill drill like that, I was perfectly happy with it. 9 x 27 travel bed, 1.5 horse 110v, worked fine.

I miss that little mill. Damn divorces.

That's quite the set-up you have going there, Dave
