    Going to look at this and hopefully buy it. What are your thoughts about it, price, and any certain things I should look at. milling-machine-.jpg

    I suggest actually providing some useful information and pics to help get some feedback.
    Details, price, pics?
    Condition and pics of the ways?
    How does the spindle sound?
    Backlash?

    Can you mill some stock on it?

    The rotary table is probably worth more than what it is sitting on.

    Hard to tell but that looks like an M-head on a dove-tail base. So it'll be more ridgid than a round-ram, but you're still limited to 1/2 HP and 1/2" collets.

    Condition and tooling is everything.

    Yes M head makes it limited. I would offer $500.00.
