  1. Can anyone point me at info for a Richard Haighton Ltd 'Major' Horizontal Mill?

    I've been offered this one (which I mistook for a Tom Senior) and I'd like to know a little more about it.

  2. Well, I found out it is an rather unusual copy of a Hardinge UM so I bought it to keep the HLV company.

    So what are the bearing surfaces like?

    Enquiring minds need to know :naughty:

    Good - even for a 50 yo machine, better in fact than my RF30

    The vertical column still has the original hand scraping all the way up

    It's looking great Bill. How come you get it done so quick?

    Low standards! :naughty:

    I always rush and later regret it (I keep telling myself it's only a machine tool)

    I finished the 'universal head' the other day, I now need to work out what to do with the 1ph/3ph conversion.

    Way to go Bill

    Just by cleaning it up it starts to look like a really useful machine.

    Love the splined shaft for the table feed.
