The computer which goes with the CNC mill has been put back in place, with 
a monitor and keyboard and mouse.  It has also been cleaned of dust with a 
vacuum and air blower.

The CNC machine has been cleaned and freed of random bits of trash.

BUT we are still missing some important things:  the fourth axis which 
looks like this (except with blue trim instead of black)

also, much more importantly, we are missing the 1/8" collet.
It is necessary for holding bits which have a 1/8" shank.
Right now we only have the collet for 1/4" shank which is nearly useless.

here is a picture of a 1/8" collet:

UNFORTUNATELY i don't know if the above item (which is for sale) is the 
right part for our mill.  probably the company could tell us.

although maybe someone here knows where the 1/8" collet is, perhaps it's 
in a container with a bunch of mill bits?
