New (to me) Milling machine

I rigged this out of an upper floor yesterday. I was able to clean it up in a few hours, adjust the gibs and get it close to where I want it with a pallet jack. I'll drop it to the floor, bolt and wire it next week.

I can't tell you how cool it feels to own a Bridgeport.. I have wanted one my whole life so to be able to get one at no cost and learn the in's and out's of it by having to take it apart was just amazing! I am looking for collets, fly cutters, chucks etc. today and hope to have it up and running soon. It'll sure beat a grinder and little drill press.
