yup flag hear too. I like the bench/stands under the machines as well as the machines. I offten wonder how many of these machines are in use today in somebody basement. thats what sucks about living in the south...everything was up north. somuch of this old stuff can be bought super cheep many times, but shippen can be a issue weather it be the cost or getting it undammaged. I get my bridge port clone due to it being dammaged when delevered.$400.wasent bad for a bent lead screw machine that I fixed my self (bent outboard of the left side bearing, simple fix)1979 model totaly referbushed,before shipping...ya right, it did have new paint... I reworked a few things and have more to do, but it does just fine for me since I nolonger do any outside work. cost me $125 to get it delevered across town to my house. and the phase converter I had on my smaller mill so..almost plug and play for less the $600 9x49 with 6" riser.and fresh gray paint!!!. ( millport mill)
