On Thursday, August 21, 2003, at 2:45pm, my wife of 34 years, Rebecca, died in my arms in an emergency room.

The last words we spoke were in perfect synchronization: "I love you with all my heart."

Grizzly G4027 Milling machine w/X axis power feed  

Extra spring loaded table stops

Quill quick stop installed

Original tool box, tools, all docs, manuals, test data, and paperwork


This machine is a Bridgeport copy.  It was purchased new from the factory in July, 2004.

It has had less than 5 hours of useIt has never cut metal - it has only cut wood

This milling machine is in 100% pristine, brand new condition, not even a paint chip can be found.  The machine is equipped for fluid cooling, if desired.  The machine has been kept in immaculate condition and surfaces oiled regularly, although it hasn't had use.  There is no rust or discoloration anywhere.  All functions work smoothly and perfectly (ie; all table feeds, down feed, auto down feed stop/return, etc.) and it runs very quietly.  Although it is belt driven, speed changes are extremely fast and simple, due to the very open design of the head.  Typically, moving the belt takes about 15 seconds.  Changing from high to low range takes about 2 seconds.  Variable speed heads are available to bolt up to this machine, as well as power drawbar kits.

This machine was used to square and bore one block of wood, as shown here.  (I machined several other blocks, but they were done on a different milling machine.)
