As far as the slides go it looks pretty worn out but that tooling would make it worth a few hundred other than that it looks like it would only be good for spare parts or a full rebuild.....

All up it would be worth around $1000 going by the photos...

I bought a 1980 Bridgeport, 2hp variable speed with chrome ways for 100 bucks at an auction in Florida about 3 years ago. I was the only bidder because it was on blocks and disconnected, so I guess everyone was worried it had major problems.

But I had asked an ex employee about it beforehand and he said it was fine, that they had it in another room and moved it right before the bankruptcy. It was also kinda ugly with light coat of rust on table and paint in bad shape. But the ways looked as new and not a single drill hole or dent on the table. Would have cleaned up to be an infinitely better machine than this one on eBay. I sold it to a local guy, keep meaning to go see it with new paint.

The ebay mill is not worth it,It Is not a vari-speed, though for $350 more it could be.sort of.

I see they did a brush job on it... missed some of the blue masking tape on the label. The knee ways look swaybacked to me as well. From the photos and the trapping I'd vote " CLAPPED OUT " but most people are quite taken by the outward appearance of things. Most likely the final price well be just short of a new BP clone. Just my nickels worth ( .02 adjusted for inflation ).

I think you are correct about the "brush job" but wrong about the tape, the machine was blue.

The true used machine "artiste" has no need of "masking tape" for his slathered masterpiece !

The said thing is it looks in better shap then the one I have at work!

Well of course it is going to be in better shape than the one at work. The only way to ensure that a machine will be un-used and pristine is bring it home. After that you might as well hang your garden hose on it. You won't have time to even power it up.
