Drill/Mill or Lathe/Mill attachment for small shop area

You may find a Bridgeport for $500., but finding one in good condition at that price is difficult.

Now here’s a reconditioned B’Port for $2,900.

Edit: Hey, I’ve had some on-line chats with the guy in the first moving link above (Scott - MXtras).

Here’s how a few skinny guys offloaded our mill, which weighs around 2,100 pounds.

True, but we are building robots, not parts for the space shuttle. A sightly worn out Bridgeport is still FAR better than any other mill you are going to find for $500 new. Still if you do want a machine that is in great condition there are still deals to be found.

By the way that is a great looking one, I saw that on practicalmachinist as well. Look at the scraping on those ways! Beautiful.

If you can find one of the smaller Clausing or Steinel mills or something similar, they would be ideal.
