    How much do you expect to sell? My current guess is you're making something like suspension linkages for ATV's, something along those lines. Doesn't matter what exactly, but it's probably a unique...

    Home Shop Harry perhaps?

    How do the bearings sound? And change in noise if you spool it up? If there's a regrind guy close you may be in luck, I think most of the cost is usually just travel.

    Yep. Unless the OPs mom is a machinist herself she probably isn't going to be real impressed by a gift with 50 millionths tolerances. I think shiny aluminum is what he will end up going with.

    If the Mini was $30K WITH a 10K spindle, rigid tapping, and maybe HSM that would be a much more attractive package. And to my understanding two of those are just software unlocks with no marginal...

    I'm with you on not buying an old Mini Mill, those things hold resale value like a Toyota for whatever reason. Which would be in your favor if you bought one new and then wanted to upgrade later.
