I have been looking around for a replacement for my mill/drill. I would like to have a Series I Bridgeport or similar. Poking around on fleabay, I found 2 Comet Mills. Both were 3 hp variable speed knee mills. One had a 10X50 table, the other had a 9X42 table. The pricing on both seemed pretty cheap, the 9x42 bid is at $510 and the "buy it now" price for the 10X50 is $1100 (different dealers).
Is there something inherently wrong with these mills that they would be priced lower than comparable mills?
Any insight will be appreciated.
