Jones No. 10. This "vertical" miller was the simplest machine in the range and consisted of a lathe-like cantilever bed assembly fitted with the saddle and table from the No. 1 miller. The headstock was of a different design to those fitted to the lathes, having larger bearings and a stronger spindle.

No. 1 Bench milling machine. This simple "stub" milling machine had a 2.75" x 12" table with movements of 6.5 inches of longitudinally, 3 inches cross travel and 3.5 inches vertically. The design was along the lines of that employed by makers of Precision lathes - Ames, Pratt & Whitney, etc., whereby a headstock from their bench lathe line was used in lieu of a more complete (and proper) spindle and overarm assembly to produce a machine intended for lighter use only.

Above and below: general-arrangement drawings from the Jones Plans series, showing the No. 1 Miller in front and side elevations.

The Jones No. 2 horizontal miller was of conventional design with a full-length overarm and arbor. The table was 3.5 inches wide, 15 inches long with a longitudinal, cross and vertical travels of 8 inches, 3.5 inches and 4 inches respectively.
Included in the standard kit of parts were castings to make a pair of 4-inch centre height plain indexing centres, a right-angle table conversion, a vertical head, swivel-base machine vise and a countershaft unit.

Indexing Centres with dividing plate.

Right-angle Table.
