If some one had an old pirrana metal muncher punch, see what they would charge to punch the holes. trade them some sawing ect, unless you need the holes on parts already on the mill.  then take a mini bench top drill press and rig it up on the mill.

Can you spin the handle all the way around on your jacks? I have a couple that I have to hold them up cause the log bunks. It is very annoying. You are not going to like it if that is the case.

Looks good though.

Can you take the jack handles off and weld a nut on top and use a 1/2" cordless impact to raise and lower it ?

Like Bruno said, my plan is to install coupling nut, like for threaded rod in place of the handles. Then I can use a socket in a twist driver (forget the real name) or a cordless drill. I may get an cordless angle drill, , and use it to raise and lower the mill head too.

I think the track mounting should be bolted as you said was your original plan. Any future adjustments will be easier to deal with than grinding off welds. A magnetic base drill would be just the thing for drilling many holes. Maybe a local tool rental would have one?

 X2 what luap said. Sooner or later a big log will get dropped on or large cant turned and the weld broken. Bolt will be easier to replace.

I ordered 5/8" rod couplings (long nuts) for the trailer jacks. I got a bag of 25 for $23.00 not sure what I will do with the extra, but I am sure I will use them sooner or later. They wanted $16.00 for 6. Going to Americade so I won't be able to work on it this weekend.

yeah same comment here.  My handles interfered with my carriage and blade guard when I was down to 1" cut above the bunks.  I added a 4 inch spacer and still need to remove the handles.  I like the nut/drill idea.  May have to "borrow" that.

I think you mean a speed wrench?  Kind of like an old brace drill.
