Simonet DLZ 450, of 1965, almost unused, purchased at Riccardo for peanuts as it did not have the gears. Contacted a small company in Thun Switzerland, where the machine was made, they asked for serial and year, they had the brand new unused gears, which came for around 400 euros. machine is complete and just thinking for a repaint

Schaublin 135 almost unused. I purchased it in Italy from a machine dealer for 5.500 Euro.
this machine was in Puglia region in south Italy where some Italian navy bases are. Italy has its own machine tools industry and pretty good one, so when such machines were purchased they were vare rarely sued for very specific jobs and to be used by most skilled and careful personnel. thus, generally the very rare Schaublins you find in Italy are almost unused

... already purchased an almost brand new aciera f3 square head milling machine for a decent price in an online auction. now I need a big milling machine to go tandem with the 135...thinking about a Schaublin 53 or 53 N, a deckel fp 3, or perhaps the marvellous and little unknown Italian made cb Ferrari m2 as the one in photo below...truly amazing machine!

PS...seen a almost unused Schaublin 102N-VM in Italy. tested it last Tuesday...brand new... they want 12.000 euros...point is that they seem they could be sensible to my heart and give it say for 8.000 euros...lets see..year was good, I might have to spent some money for tax reasons and the Fuhrer of the house looks almost treatable this time :D
