I normally just document projects with photos, but for this mill I thought it'd be fun to try my hand at video.  So here's the first episode:

I give a quick tour of the machine, play around with milling some scrap metal, then start disassembling the head, spindle/quill and ram.  Next episode will be mostly disassembly and cleaning: need to do the bearings, fine feed control, table, and the body itself.

Let me know what you think of the video!  First time editing something like that together :)
