This is a Parkson 2N horizontal mill I eventually bought from the same guy that sold me the lathe.

This is an interesting cabinet of tooling I bought at an online auction.
It came from the closure of the UK Cincinnati dealership.
Visible is a selection of INT 50 tooling and a range of Coventry  dieheads with the diehead regrinding fixture in the box on the bottom shelf.

The left hand grinder has a diamond faced wheel for tackling carbide tooling.
