    It does not have a DRO. Spend $3500 to add a quality DRO to it and then you have a better machine. Otherwise, no it is far less desirable than any other lighter machine with digitals.

    If you want it, get it. IMO it isn't worth anywhere near $6k and it isn't worth shipping or driving states away to get it. Millions of tons of good machines in the NW. Most of my mills have come from the Everett area.

    How much delivered to my door?

    I'm in PDX. Been looking for another BP.
