Dear All,

I have a had a Victoria Elliot U2 universal milling machine for many years. Its utility has been vastly improved by having digital read out on each axis. It does really good work for me in terms of accuracy and finish.

Unfortunately, I never had a top slide for it (for horizontal milling) although I do have the arbor brackets. The stays between the slide and the table can easily be fabricated. This limits my ability to do certain tasks, in particular cutting larger gears.

A slotting head was also made and that would also be extremely useful.

I have never seen an advert for a U2 milling machine in the UK but I would love to buy one for spares c/w top slide, whatever the condition (no matter how rusty). If anyone knew the location of one of these machines, all my dreams would come true!
