.........Looks way cool to me. Very well maintained with only a couple unimportant parts missing, like the quill feed. Very proffessionally wired, and most likely used by highly trained individuals. And only $300?

I wonder which factory Ford... GM... http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

$300.00 could buy a nice DP from anyplace.

I was picturing some Mexican workers with chisels in their hands hiding in a box.

Oh Geez Bill, don't get another race riot going.

You should see his other "equipment" listed. Not to mention the fact that it's his first posting. (Under this name.) http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//frown.gif

Unless I'm mistaken, that's the model that was used in the 60's by the upholster tradesman. It was used to roll the newspapers they used in the Custom Tuck and Roll Upholstery jobs in TJ they did on the weekends for California high school kids who didn't know any better! Naugas were left slottered all over the North of Mexico for thier hides.

Les,
It just appears to be a coffee cup, I believe that's the coolant reservior, therefore should be included.

I think the guy is selling it from his house in Mass, and you pay him, then he tells the people in mexico to ship it to you. One of those deals where the guy doing the selling has never layed a hand on the prodcut.

They didn't use newspaper. That was too expensive. They used dry cow manure! I'm not kidding!
