My Mill Rite (Retsel)
I was given a used Mill Rite, and I'm not sure how old it is or what model it is.
I wanted to buy some parts for it, but I can not find this model.
The product on the Retsel website is 1/4HP and 40 RPM, and the one I have is a 1/2 HP and 90 RPM.
From the pictures online they look the same..
Any Retsel expert around who could help me shed light on this?
You have a Mil-Master, not a Mil-Rite.
I think it is a mil rite. In pictures online, the mil master looks different than what I have..
here is a Mil Mater according to the Retsel site.
Call the manufacturer.
I fired up the mill today, for the first time.
The sticker on the motor says 90 RPM, but it seemed a bit slower than that. When I counted the revs I discovered that it is only 40 RPM. So I have to assume that the motor is a 1/4 HP and the sticker is the wrong one for this model.. :)
Short Video of the Mill at work
Thanks for the video, I don't think I had ever seen one in operation. It seems like it is much quieter than most mills.
