There have been at least 2 owners before me. The machine has seen a fair amount of use -- and the table surface shows it -- but it seems to be pretty tight. It has an R8 spindle. The previous owner installed wheels. I plan to remove them before bolting it down, but they were really handy for moving the machine.

I bought this mill from an individual in a nearby city via Craigslist. I paid on the high side ($1,800.00), but it did come with a set of collets, a couple of Jacobs chucks, a fly cutter, a face mill, a few R8 tools that I haven't figured out yet, and the vise shown. My shop is in a 2-car garage, so this is a good size mill for me.
