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
Howdy Bake,

The front cover was a very weird shaped part, kind of a bitch to hold in order to make the cuts needed, I just cobbled the setup using what ever I had to block it and hold it so that it wouldn't chatter when I made the cut. It turned out well, took longer to figure out how to hold the darn thing then to machine it.
