    Default Wanted: Rusnok 850 or 853 Mill

    Looking for a Rusnok 850 or 853 (tall column) milling machine in good, operable condition. Would like to find one with collets and the original mill vise. Willing to travel within the NE US to Midwest or would entertain shipping through Fastenall, etc. Thanks.

    Just so you know, the original vise was not made by Rusnok. It's actually a Palmgren 425 or 425b. From what I've seen of them, they are OK for light work, but not really a mill vise -- you'd find a Kurt 4" or Kurt 3" vise to be much more accurate and rigid.

    Also, the collets are just common DA100 (on the newer Rusnoks). DA100 collet sets are available from pretty much all tooling manufacturers and also come up on Ebay with some frequency. The older Rusnoks from the 50's and 60's used YY collets, which are much fussier and harder to find.
