Childs Ram Head Milling Machine

Childs Home Page   Childs Plain-turning Metal Lathe   Childs Wood Lathe

A beautifully restored Childs vertical ram-type milling machine. This was of unusual design for so small a machine with all the major parts made from rectangular castings. The vertical column was off-set to the right of the table's lateral centre line - giving a rather unbalanced appearance - with the "knee" sliding up and down the left-hand face under the control of a vertical screw.

The vertical column is off-set to the right of the tables centre line with the "knee" running up and down its left-hand face.

Maker's name cast into the horizontal ram of the vertical miller
