Boley UFR Precision Universal Mill and Jig driller from the 1930sThis special miller was fitted with built-in rotary table in the form of a compound slide with travels of 200 mm along the X axis of the table and 140 and 120 mm on the slide itself. Designed to help with radius milling the technique was to adjust the centre of the radius, by using a zero stop under the spindle, then set the X axis to the radius size. The z-axis (on the head) was also adjustable, in 25 mm steps, by loosing the milling-head beam and inserting measuring slip blocks under two rests, one on each column arm. The milling head had travel of 50 mm
