ALL JACKED UP ON MT DEW

Well let's see what's going on here. Finally got the machines wired up for inspection. Temporarily, but it is great to have them working. Only snapped a video of the mill because it was the first thing running. Need belt guards, mill vise, lubes for the head, new belt for the z-axis servo and something to mill into!! The lathe is spinning too, but I kinda let the saddle/apron run too far right, jammed it up at the end of the feed screws, but didnt fuck anything up. I thought it had a safety stop... The lathe needs a THOROUGH cleaning and greasing, but the ways are in beautiful condition. The mill was just CREAMPUFF to begin with because it came out of an R&D lab.. TITS UP SKYHIGH
