    Just wondered if any other forum members have one of these milling machines. Don't see much about them but I'm old enough to remember them being sold new in the 1970s by Scott Urqhart. I've got the vertical head to go on mine but currently only have it set up as a horizontal as have a larger vertical mill. They were made in Italy and are a heavy machine. They originally had a strange ratchet mechanism on the Z axis for moving the table up to the cutter but on my example, this has been replaced with a screw mechanism.
