Nearly brand new Conect CNC lathe and CNC mill.

Came out of a school in Ireland and shipped over courtesy of the British Army to a barracks near me [ don't tell the Army as they don't know <g> ]

The lathe is based on a Myford ML10 and is all complete, manuals software etc.

The mill is based on a Rishton,

They look to only have done the original setup pieces when installed.

Software is very dated but at least it runs on a PC and not a BBC computer like the early models.

Now to try to find some floor space.............

John those are cool, I think "floor space" could be gained if You stack them on a set of sturdy shelfs. Just how big are they? Looks like a couple hundred pounds each, or are the pics deceiving?

If you ship them to me I can free up some floor space and store them long term for you.

The little Rishton mill looks like a Prazi/Emco:
