Hey yall, I'm looking for a mill for my new home shop. Preferably a bench top style mill but hit me up with whatever you have for sale. I'm located in Bc but I'm willing to travel or ship the right unit across Canada. Thanks!

Yeah I saw that one the other day. Definitely I think the guy is asking a little bit too much. Nice machine though

Yes possibly

The reason why I asked is that:

The basement guys tend to push the prices of the smaller bench mills up a bit - or shall I say it that the demand is there, and so they don't lose value like the bigger industrial ones do.

I've picked up 3 full sized mills in the past 6 years, the biggest at 4K, then the other 2 at 2K each. Better value for the functionality, but you need the ground level space for them. (MrPete222 and my friend Bert both moved a full sized mill to a basement, but I wouldn't).

The fellow that was # 1 in line decided to purchase the mill I wanted so I guess I have to keep mine for the time being....It would have been a nice up-grade in a couple of sense's but wasn't to be I guess.
