Hey there. About to retire from 2nd job. Looking into projects to keep me busy. Just bought and then returned a HF 44991 mill. Now looking at a better starting point. Have found locally a Smithy 1220 xl combo, used, for decent price. Going to look at it tonight.

Great info here on set-ups and fixes for machines. I have to get my first one, learn how to use it and then see where it leads me. Thx for being here.
