Clausing Mill

Recommended Posts

Just throwing it out there. Clausing Mill. Very highly sought after for home use as its a true knee mill but not a 2800lb Bridgeport. Its basically considered a tool room mill. Very accurate. Has power feed. Has complete ER25 Collet set. I have too many heavy things to move! $2k. Vice not included. Original MT2 collets also included.

What kind of shape is the mill in?  Is this something you where using? What is your time frame - When do you need it out? 

Admittedly I know nothing about using a mill -- That being said, I've always wanted one to play with and learn something new on

Jer, this is a very desirable mill for the home hobbyist as it's relatively small/light but can do a lot of what the bigger machines can do.  They can't take massive cuts but if you are working on gun stuff, small cuts are what makes the day.  Additionally they are somewhat limited with the MT2 taper (as opposed to the more common R8) but there are work arounds.  For 60 bucks you can get an MT2 spindle with an ER32 collet head and run plenty of tool sizes.  It will take up more space but again, if it's just or mostly gun stuff, it shouldn't be an issue.

I can't say it would be mostly gun stuff but certainly gun stuff too -- honestly I don't know what I'd use it for -- I just know I want one with the mindset that I would find uses for it once I knew how to use it

Thanks Bully. The mill is in great shape. A complete er25 Collet set is included. Ill snap some pics of it for you. Nice and accurate. This would be a fantastic mill to learn on as everything is basically the same as a full size mill since its a true knee mill. Ive done 1911 frame rail fitting and ball mill cuts on 1911 slides. Ive done precision boring for press fits. The power feed works well and is included. You hardly ever see power feed on these so its kind of rare. I need it out by the 24th or its coming with me :). I started on a clausing, I traded up to a bridgeport, it was to much to deal with in my small space and didnt really offer me any advantage for the things I am doing, but plenty of disadvantage every time I needed to move 3200 pounds! The clausing is a breeze to move by comparison.

  • 67 How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"

    1. 1. How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"


      • Very, (Do not want to pay for slide cutting, Looks cool, etc.)
      • Neutral (don't have a preference either way)
      • Not at all (not a feature I am looking for).
    2. 2. How much are you willing to pay for "Optics ready"? (i.e. gun is cut for an optic)


      • Up to $50
      • $50 to $100
      • $100 to $200
      • $250 or more
      • None. If it is not standard part of the gun, not willing to pay more for a model with it.
    3. 3. Why are you looking for Optics Ready?


      • Planning on adding optic.
      • Want to have the option just in case
      • n/a
    4. 4. Why do you want to add an optic?


      • Looks cool/tactical or someone told me I should
      • Need it for deteriorating eyesight.
      • To compete in certain gun games (USPSA Carry Optics)
      • Other Reasons

    • So is this another option? https://franklinarmory.com/franklin-armory-xo-26-r2/  
    • I didnt hear what ever came of that...  but here is another  story.  https://www.tngunowners.com/forums/topic/108864-atf-prosecution-for-pistol-as-sbr/page/2/
    • What a country, huh?  Where else can you take something good, declare it as bad, redesign it to be better and not bad and then invent something to reverse the good turning the bad back into something good that was bad and profit off of it?  God bless America.  
    • @Sniper You know that your comparison of me to Gregory "Joey" Johnson is totally bogus and just your inflammatory way to personally attack me without really considering the point(s) I make and respond with an intelligent and articulate comment.  From my previous posts here, anyone can tell that I respect our flag and what it stands for.  I totally disagree with the association of our flag to other issues that Johnson made in his quote that you posted. In a similar fashion, it would be if I compared you to and cited one of the many hateful proclamations made by Richard B. Spencer, the wife-abuser, American neo-Nazi and white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank.  That would be an extreme over reaction and not fair to you, even if you may agree with some of his stated positions.  I really do think we all need to throttle back down the hateful comments.  Yes, I have been guilty of writing some incendiary posts and will try not to make them personal towards other posters and focus on the point I am trying to make.  It is hard not to take criticism personally, but I think that I and all of us should at least try to rise above making negative comments towards each other, ranging from snarky barbs, to petty insults to slanderous and hateful accusations, since they clearly are not productive and just makes things worse on both sides. Also, we are all human with imperfections and histories of decisions and actions performed in the past that we now may regret or would have done differently.  So there really never will be any candidate devoid of flaws or previous bad choices.  Therefore, we all have to make do with whom we feel, moving forward, will have learned from their past successes and failures, and act and perform their duties in the best interest of our country.  We all are free to make that challenging choice and decision ourselves, which of course includes taking a chance and/or leap of faith. That is one of the reasons I am currently leaning towards supporting Joe Biden's candidacy.  Yes, he has had some creepy moments with people and I do wish he could just come out and sincerely apologize for how he treated Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas hearings in the Senate.  Yet, from the current ridiculously large crop of Democrat candidates who have migrated to the far-left, (way too far in my opinion), I think that Biden is the most moderate and acceptable of the bunch. So is it really too much to ask for you and others to accept that there are many folks who really do not like Donald Trump and never have and are seeking a viable alternative candidate to vote for?  You may not agree with us, but that is the beauty of our Constitutional system, 1st Amendment rights, that allows us all to express our different opinions.  But ideally, to do so respectfully.  AVB-AMG
