First tool failure. The mill RPM readout started reading just "0". Troubleshooting lead me to the spindle speed sensor. The sensor is an optical sensor that "counts" the holes in a disk that rotates with the spindle. The holes and sensor all clogged with grease. A little cleaning brought the RPM reading to life.


Moved the mill to its new home and leveled. Need to dial in everything again. With the lathe stand now where the mill was, the "shop" sure looks small. Oh well hadn't planned on an apprentice. The lathe is still on the porch.


Mill & lathe stand in really small shop.
