Thanks, guys. A few more add-ons (install DRO, put VFD in a cabinet, hang fuzzy dice and air freshener from the quill lever) and I'm back to the pumping engine.
Best,
Stan

Steamer
I'm very happy with the Glacern. Before I got it, I borrowed a 6" Kurt from a neighbor. Of course the Kurt was too big for my G0704 mill so I ordered the 4"
After using the Kurt for a month, I don't see a significant difference in finish or operation. When I can, I really try to buy USA products, but io couldn't justify the price difference.
I also have Glacern's keyless chuck and 2" 45degree face mill. Both priced well for the quality.
Best,
Stan

Thanks Dave. I certainly hope to. The only issue is reaching the drawbar. At 5'6" it's a bit of a stretch. I either need a stepstool or a power drawbar.
