Burke Milling Machine Restore
I recently purchased a Burke #4 Milling Machine. It is model B-100-4. The X and Z axis are hand lever operated with a rack and opinon. It appears to have seen very little work. The ways still show scape marks. It was dismantled when I got it at salvage cost. I have started the restore process and will post pictures as I progress.

|    Cleaning done and castings painted
|    I had to make a new spindle for the Y-axis on the knee,|
1/2 x 10 tpi left-hand acme, a new dial and handle.
|    When I bought the mill the gibs for the Y & Z axis were missing along with the rack on the Z-axis for raising and |
lowering the knee. I machined new items for each of these.
Gib for cross slide
Rack for Z axis
I have completed the restoration of my Burke Milling Machine.
I believe it is a #3 since both the X & Z axis are hand lever operated.
Here are some pictures.

(New cross slide screw, bearing, and handwheel)
