    Default Brand New Deckel FP4M

    Figure you guys might get a kick out of this.

    Looks like an FPS dumbed down a bit.

    Original FP4M is missing the horizontal quill if I understand correctly, this one is missing the horizontal spindle altogether? Strange marketing decision....

    Starting at only $78,000...

    You could buy 2 Haas VF2s for the cost of one manual mill...

    It's priced in the same range as new FPS machines, not surprising for new german machines of this type. That being said, I'd go with the FPS machines as this one seems to be only half as capable.

    In case anyone goes to Emo Hannover, you can see it in real as it will be displayed there at the DMG-Mori stand.
