Stumbled across this YouTube page. Training videos. But look how brand new that horizontal mill is... Cincinnati?

Yep! Thaat's how they used to mill iron back then.

Definitely a new mill.  Drilling a hole in the end of the stock to aid using a hold down strap with a pin on the end.  You don't see that method being used today.

I didn't see that in the videos that Shawn referenced. Are you referring to another vid?

Was that a Cincinnati horizontal mill in the milling videos?

Imagine getting a mill like that brand new today? $30,000? And it's still not made as heavy?

To build that mill today, it would cost in the excess of $300K.  35K is about what it cost in the early 1960's.  Probably half that in the mid 1940's.
