Have the opportunity to purchase a Pratt & Whitney No 2 horizontal milling
machine. Has anyone had experience with these machines.

how many HP is it and what is the spindle taper/connector?
if it's in decent shape and you're looking for a horizontal mill, it might not be a bad deal. i have no direct experience with P&W machinery, but i've seen a bunch of it and know a few folks with various P&W machines, and they all seem to like them.

Thanks andy b for your reply. As far as I can make out it is a No 3 Morse Taper, apart from needing a motor it appears to be in good condition. The previous owner was using a 1 hp motor, would be inclined to use around 2 hp, if I decide to buy it. Price is
$250 Aust.
