10292Re: stand height
- Jul 2, 2004Guys,
I built a stand for my mill/drill a couple years ago. Check out:
I do mostly small pieces and I hate stooping over to see what I'm
doing, so the top of my vice is at 48". Sounds tall, but once you get
the mill up to where you're not bent over the table you'll wonder how
you worked on it before.

bend over a bit and look down on the work. If I had my druthers I
would prefer a stand about 28" high. Most guys like the 30" inch high
stand. 38" inches is going to put chips up as high as your eyes.
That kodak machine stand would make an excellent work table directly
behind you and 38" inches would be a perfect height for a surface
plate, tools, a sketch pad, etc. I had my 7045 up on my wood bench
which is a bit over 33 1/2 inches high and it was way up there.

58" when the spindle is about 17 inches above the table. The width of
the column is 8" plus.

long and 3 feet wide and the top is about 1 1/2" above the concrete
