Last spring, I spent 8 days in hospital, and came out weak as a kitten. Just at that time, I had the opportunity to buy a Mill/Drill/Lathe. The owner had passed and I was not able to ask any questions. It weighs about 450Lb. My brother and a very good friend took the mill off the top and managed to get the two pieces into the back of my Plym Voyager. I literally couldn't stand for 5 minutes,so it's still there. It was originally purchased around 1999.
It came with a booklet titled:

Has anybody got any info on this, or should I wait till I have it set up and post pictures?

It seems to be pretty common here in OZ. They are quite OK if you treat them gently within their limitations.

You sure can't complain about the price though.
