I have found a "KALAMAZOO MODEL 3VS" mill, is there anything I should look for. Like are there any special problems with one. It has been out of service for five years. Unknown if it was running before it was placed in storage.

Thanks,
Paul

If it looks like this one, http://www.starequipment.net/picture/107153-2%20kalamazoo.html , my guess is that it was made by Kondia in Spain. If that is the case and it is not totally thrashed, it should be a good machine. Look for any tags (the motor tag is a good place to start) to check the country of origin or other clues. Kondia made most of the knee mills for Hurco, I have one and I like it.

MickeyD,
Yes, that looks like the pictures I have seen. I searched Yahoo, and think it might be the same as the Clausing.

Thanks a bunch,
Paul
