    Post Heads up on a cheap miller

    Anyone in CT...todays Bargain News;

    "MILLING MACHINE, Bpt Miller, very old, good cond, asking $395. (860) 379-4631 ."

    NO personal interest other than I was going to look at it this afternoon but can't make it.
    Gentleman said they've been using it for wood working only.

    Hey, I'm just trying to pass on some information someone here might find of use, I don't care if you call it a "do-hickey".

    Maybe you shouldn't either and just walk on by.
