    Nothing to be afraid of here.

    It'll be here 8/1 if this monsoon takes a break.
    And you must have better things to do than ghost me around.
    Well done QSIMDO, even at the listed price.

    It looks to be a fine machine and should serve you well. From my perspective anytime a guy can get a clean full size 3 hp knee mill with a Kurt vise and DRO in the $5000 range you're ahead of the game. I would like to do as well one of these days. Congratulation.

    True. they nail you to the wall, and then extract the wallet.

    As in the case mentioned.

    That cellar door fiasco was inexcusable.
    Makes you wonder what else is sub-par.

    Termite?
    Oh..."THERMITE"!
    I think termite would be more correct.
    Thermite is actually useful.

    I guess it would be difficult to experience such a high degree of public humiliation without reacting badly.
    Surprised he came back.

    That's just an asking price and that included $1k worth of Kurt swivel vise and a DRO.

    Let's just say I ended up paying less than a POS Grizzly so...GFY.
    That's awesome!

    You going to need a frequency drive for it? I'd be interested in what you find for a 3 horse motor cause I'm in the market for one myself.

    Cheers,
    Should turn out better than new if you sink $5600 into it.
