I'm moving the shop and am now able to get heavy tooling in and out. Yes! My question is to those who have ridden ( or are currently) down this path. What are the advantages of a Lathe vs. Vertical Mill? Has technology progressed enough in the tooling it's self to warrant a newer machine vs. vintage machine?
I'm seeing plenty of vintage mills at great pricing. I don't know enough about the mills to determine if they're on borrowed time. What should I look for immediately upon inspection?
My space is wired for 3 phase or single.
Thanks gents! I don't want to make a 1000.00 mistake.
BTW if your in the Midwest (Ohio) and your wanting to unload a machine PM me.
