Taig CNC Vertical Milling Machine. Supplied with a control box and, as the miller and box were imported from the USA, I am including the yellow 240/110-volt transformer show in the photographs.

The table has always been protected by sacrificial boards leaving it in unmarked condition. The Taig has been unused for several years but is, of course, in full working order with all three axes working as expected under computer control.
