2013-11-19· Have been looking for lathes and lurking on this site for a while ran across a fella that had a wells index model 745 vertical mill he purchased it from his machinist brother 7 years ago never hooked up everything very tight, 1 broken handle, all ways and screws, table and all seem to be excellent keep in mind I am a newbie..
2011-12-22· Through a series of fortunate coincidences, two weeks ago I came into posession of a Model 40 Index milling machine. The mill had suffered at least a decade of neglect, but the price was right (free!, "If you can fix it, you can have it" were the previous owners words), and it appeared worth taking on the challenge of restoring it.
I just bought this nifty INDEX model 55 vertical mill here's what it looked like coming off the flatbed!! (b.c. "before cleaning") Here's what it looked like with about 75% cleaning!! :- ) I used "Mean Green" spray cleaner from Familly Dollar stores or similar an alkaline degreaser/cleaner formula.
2012-09-12· The Index #40 was mentioned and sold by Index in 1954 alongside their heavy #55. By 1960 the model "45" was the light vertical they advertised. It was "styled" and had a fairly unique square ram. The "55" became the "super 55" and was unstyled, sharing the trunk and knee of the #60 horizontal. I think the #4 digit in all the more modern vertical 645, 747 etc derive from #40 being the origional
2013-07-24· i found a vintage Index 845 Vertical Mill on CL the other night. she was within 50 miles!!! i went up and took a look at her and fell in love all over again. I'd like to introduce you to Beatrice, my first mill purchase. She's a little bigger than the other girls. She's pushing somewhere in the range of 2,500 pounds maybe a scotch more .
2008-09-03· I decided to stay with the B&S taper in my Index model 40 and have no regrets as I have found all the tooling I need for it at very reasonable prices. In most cases for less than R-8 tooling for my Bridgeport. In any case I think you will enjoy the Index mill and I hope you get a break in the weather so you can get it home safe.

I'm a relatively new hobbyist, looking for a small vertical knee mill, faced with the age old dilemma: should I embark on a quest for a used American standard like a Clausing 8520(8530)/Rockwell 21-100 or buy a new Chinese version? It seems like Grizzly (G3102)/Harbor Freight (40939-1VGA)/Wholesale Tool (3004-0095)/Penn Toll Co. (DM-150) all sell what look to be the same machine.
