The frame and base give support and rigidity to the horizontal milling machine and consist of the Reservoir in the base for the cutting fluids. The knee is attached to the column and houses the feed mechanisms. The column is a precision-finished section that supports and guides the knee when it is moved vertically. The saddle is mounted on the knee and is able to be cross fed either manually or under power. The table is supported on the saddle and travels on the longitudinally and horizontal plane. On some machines the table can be swiveled 45°.Table traverse hand wheel is used to move the table horizontally left and right in front of the column. The table cross feed hand wheel is used to move the table toward or away from the column. The spindle holds and drives tools such as arbors, cutters, and attachments used on a milling machine. The ram overarm holds the arbor support. The arbor support holds the arbor in alignment and stead during the marching. Revolutions per minute are controlled by the spindle-speed dial.
