Yes, they are all pretty much the same except for the paint scheme and label. Pardon the rust but it’s in my barn. I’ve done a bunch of upgrades on mine since I got it. Added a stiffener to the column, gas pistons, a table base to elevate it and recently a belt drive when my plastic gears failed. A handy tool.

Your mill  resembles my Mini lathe from Harbor Freight

It is actually, the same lathe accept for proprietary color and logo , as the Grizzty( green) Northern Tools/Klutch mini lathe (white)   and several other versions from the same manufacture in China

Had a request to show my mini mill set up for some of my jobs so here’s how I did my lower M12 swivel. A lot of eyeball measurements. Trued it the best that I could. Used my 1/2 inch end mill for the initial cut after using a center point to find the approximate center of the stock and then moved the work towards the [apparent] thinner side to widen the cut to fit the width of the swivel which is a little more than 1/2 inch. I’ll clean it up tonight. Need nicer screws too.

Marlin Lever Action Rifles / Antique Marlin 38 WCF - help
« Last post by Gabriel Law on Today at 01:02:16 PM »
A friend brought his Marlin rifle to me for advice.  It's an antique and he has wrung the chamber.  In addition, the tip of the lever has been broke by trying to drive out the stuck case from the muzzle.  The magazine cap screw is missing. I tried to post pics of the rifle but even after reducing them in size, they will not print here...?

The top of the receiver is stamped "Marlin Safety".  Barrel stamped "Marlin Firearms Co. - New Haven, CT. USA
                                                                           Patented Oct. 11, 1887.  April 2, 1889
Serial number 58118.

Info and advice greatly appreciated....
