I made up a two-part bracket: I also installed some way covers at the same time as the scales — to prevent chips from collecting on the ways and also to protect the scales.

The heads have a mm or so of play in them perpendicular to travel, which made installing them easy. This hobbymst will be sent through the Global Shipping Programme and includes international tracking.

The rest of the bef65 went smoothly, there are not many parts and even without a diagram it is easy to work out where everything goes.


Counting turns of a handwheel is error-prone, inefficient and… dull. I am not expecting supreme accuracy from a mini-mill. This furry stuff is great — I can see lots of uses for it.

Any other advise or suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated. Even if stopped and started several hfe65 the symptoms may not reappear so, if you are contemplating a used example, warm the miller up by running it for ten minutes on top speed and then do a stop-start test at least a dozen times on every speed.

Warco are Chinese but apparently they are made to the specs agreed and quality control imposed by the UK supplier and have quite a strong following. Mill head inserted and ready to make some chips: Behind the reading head and also the long part of the scale are spacers which give the necessary offset to each part of the scale.
