Speaking of mills! My Hardinge TM Horizontal Mill has finally arrived and it is in its new home. I'm very happy with the machine and can't wait to put it to use. I had a few problems with the electrical, but after messing around and educating myself on the electrical workings of a mill, I finally got the thing to turn nicely.
Also, during this whole production, I have built a 7'x6' shed on the side of the shop to house all the bikes, wheels and frames I have been acquiring. It will be nice to get all the bikes out of the shop space. More room is always a plus. I like space to move around. It also opens up a lot of room for more tools, vices, stands, etc.
That being said, it is now time to reorganize and get ready to build the next couple of frames in line. Andrew will soon be on a brand new commuter and DJ will be aboard his new CX rig.
Here are a couple of pictures to tie you over until then.
BB30 boring at its finest!
Boring in progress.
Bearing fits nicely!
You have to fit in the single speed ride!
The guy I bought the mill from told me he only had a couple collets for the mill. This is what he sent me. Awesome!
The mill in its new home!

Popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate the new mill and the new shed!
I hope all of you are having a good week and that you are getting a lot of riding in. I will be out of town until Tuesday 6/28. I will be answering emails and phone calls though, so don't hesitate to give me a call.
Here is a jam to take you out.
