    How much are mills going for in your area, say an older working Bridgeport ?

    For me it doesn't matter. I don't have the ceiling height in my shop for a full sized machine.

    I hope it sells quick before I start getting ideas!

    Used one years ago. Decent little machine for secondary work, or for small stuff at home. Only squawk I found is that the MT collets aren't as convenient as the R8 size. Price is about what I would expect.

    Anybody else notice what looks like rust on the quill stop screw?

    That's actually a pretty decent price for one of those. They are in demand because they take up a lot less space than a standard knee mill.

    They dont use tapered gibs so you have a whole bunch of screws down the length to set the gib.

    It’s a bay or a bubble window, 68 or later.
    Once you’ve been bitten by the split window bug(or bus in this case) nothing else will do.
