It will certainly make some HSM happy, if they can manage the 5,800 lbs it weighs. And I thought I had problems moving a 1,000 lb lathe.

Right -

Who is going to pay to have it shipped all the way from the Netherlands

Lookee all the toolholders. Looks like I'm going to have to make another run of BXA's, I'm jealous.

Interesting that German ebay is still showing bidder IDs for large sums

Looks like a homemade toolpost, there was one nearly identical in design in the Model Engineer a few years back.

You ask who'd have it shipped to the UK (from Germany, not NL). Well, I recently did the reverse; I had 2 tons of Harrison M400 shipped from the UK to the North of the Netherlands where I live. Door to door, GBP 200. I previously did the same with a Beavermill, similar price.

Alistair, if you check deep in your sporran, you might just find enough ha'pennies and thruppeny bits to cover the shipping...

Door to door, GBP 200.

Who was the shipper?

I've been quoted $675.00 per 2000lbs just here in the US

This is in many ways similar to my lathe which weighs 1.2 tons about half this weight nbut if I did buy it I am sure it would be a beauty look at the seperate motor on the saddle never seen that before.Alistair
