Vertical Milling Machine

There are images of a benchtop Vertical Milling Machine of my own design.

Benchtop Vertical Mill

It is designed around two 8" inch steel pipes, welded to form the body. The motor and belts are inside the pipe - not very convenient, but I just couldn't resist. The bolts sticking out the back tension the belts. The X-Y-Z table has 6" of travel in all directions.

In the image, light grey is cast aluminum, dark grey is cold rolled steel.
