    Default Assessing a K&T 215 S-12

    I'm looking for my first mill and have decided on a horizontal/vertical machine with a ram. I found a K&T 205 with a dealer in Ohio. Unfortunately, there's no way for me to inspect the machine prior to purchase. The dealer has recorded two videos of the machine. If anyone has a few minutes to take a look at provide some feedback, I'd really appreciate it. I'm picking up an odd noise from the vertical head, but I'm not sure what's typical on a machine like this.

    Dealer listing:
    Kearney & Trecker - Horizontal Mill With | Industrial Assets Machinery

    Machine videos:
    Kearney & Trecker - Horizontal Mill With Vertical Independent Overarm | 12" x 56"Stock #6595P - YouTube
    Kearney & Trecker - Horizontal Mill W/ Vertical Independant Motorized Overarm- 12" x 56" Stock#6595P - YouTube

    Thanks!!
