Beaver mill

Anyone know what PAL stands for in the Beaver Pal model?Did they build
these PAL models themselves or was it a rebadged import?

No idea unless they copied the dog food people. However Tony Griffiths on Lathes.co.uk does seem to suggest that the design of the PAL was similar enough to the rest of the Beavers for the design elements to be the same - negating the "import" theory perhaps. He could ,of course, be wrong.

We have an old 'paper tape' Beaver mill that has been retro-fitted with newer CNC control by Pennnine Automation Ltd (PAL). It may be that Pennine and Beaver had some sort of partnership. PAL are still in business (unlike Beaver) and still do a good job.

I don`t think Pennine were going at that time and I`m sure there was never a relationship between them.Pennine are not very highly regarded as retrofitters not amongst all the cnc service guys I know anyway.

I can only speak as I find.....Pennine have retrofitted three M/C's for us and all have been fine.
