I have a mini-lathe that mostly gathers dust for me. I thought it looked lonely so I picked up a mini-mill at a great deal the other day to help with the dust collecting and to keep the mini-lathe company.

I was a machine tech/mechanic for a few years. Forgot more than I remember. I worked a second shift maint dept in a factory. We had a hundred plus CNC mills and lathes. Along with robot cells, balancers, roto-flows, heat treat ovens, etc The place was a nightmare of chaos
I notice a couple things in your photo. Doosan, I heard of it but never worked on it. We had Okuma mostly with a bunch of Mori Seki. Then maybe a half dozen brands of a couple each.
Your clean, too clean. Guessing start of shift or special photo pose. Did you maintain your machine as well as operate? Our setup used machine "operators", most didn't have any machinist training. We called them button monkeys. they didn't maintain the machine itself. But they sure could tear them up.
