After hearing nothing from the buyer of my machines since he read my message Tuesday morning I sent a message telling him that if I don't hear from him by Friday with a date and time I'm keeping the deposit and putting the machines back on the market.

Well glory be, he'll be here Friday after work.

They are both sold. I wouldn't go mini, been there, done that. A 10x22 makes the most sense. Like the one Blondihacks has.

Never hurts to take a step back before taking that new next step forward. The world is changing very quickly these days.

I won't say too much here... Personally, I think you made a good choice when it comes to looking at smaller machining equipment for home hobby adventures.

Thanks, I appreciate that.
I spent an hour or so last night clearing space so that the machines can be made ready at the overhead door.
They definitely take up a lot of space. Next machines will definitely be benchtop machines.

Did you sell your tooling, power feed and fancy head alignment jig with the mill?
