When I visited before I bought my mill Tommy told me he has a master list with every mill IH has ever sold...it includes all mills that Aaron sold too...
Little hard to estimate numbers as the shipments out of China can run a bit inconsistant.
Tommy did say the next group was delayed another few months but haven't heard anything more since his site & phone has gone down last week.
I spoke with Machine Tools Warehouse in Canada the other day. They told me that as of April this year they are going to offer a complete CNC-kit for the MD001 mill, similar to IH.
I would assume the MD001 CNC-kit would work on a IH mill too. This is good for folks, such as me, thinking about converting their mill. Thanks for passing on this information.
The shocking thing is that this post has gotten more than 2K views!?

My 2005 IH Mill has a serial number in the mid-1400s . . . so if the serial numbers were continuous, that would mean 500 or more imported since 2005.
i have 2 ihcncs , i have serial number 0010 with a date code of 2006 as well as serial number 1613 with no date code, but i bought it right at the time gene took over from aaron. and i believe mine was their first kit mill that they shipped.
