    I've never seen such an animal.


    150 euros!

    Nothing in italy costs 150euros. Maybe a cup of (cold) coffee.
    I bet its a typo, 114 HP and 1500euros.

    If it's a real Dickson toolpost, that in itself is worth double the asking price...

    Go on, Tony, you know you want it

    Actually, it looks like a decent piece of kit, despite the fuzzy pic - looks like a tovaglieri MAG, If it is the MAG200,quite a beast (8" centre height, 4HP?) and it'll do 45 - 2000RPM, 39" between centres, hardened bed...
