  • Bizmark (sp ) Mills

    Hi,
    I have a chance to potentially purchase a Bizmark Mill, but I am unfamiliar
    with them. Has anyone had any experience with them, good or bad ?
    I haven't seen it yet, but plan to within the next few days.
    Thanks,
    Ron

    It might be a good idea to find out the exact spelling of the name of the machine and get a serial number.

      If it's an older mill, it may be "Bismark," but I've never heard of it, nor has www.lathes.co.uk .

      Can you post a picture? If it's an Asian import it may appear as many different brands, some of which people may be familiar with.

        Make sure you have a reinforced concrete floor, as the Bismarcks are very heavy (50,000 tons) and have a tendency to sink













        In reality I know nothing about them at all.

          But do you really think he'll wage naval warfare in his shop???

          Then again, I have been known to throw a hammer pretty hard a time or two.

            And weren't they notorious for leaving a dark stain??
            You might not like what I say,but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.
