How about a couple nice Bridgeports, or an older but well taken care of Kasuga CNC mill. The BPs are complete with DROs and will go from $2500 and up, the Kasuga can probably be had for $5k

He also has some lathes for sale.
Ive personally got a 13x36 Colchester round top, well tooled, with a fair amount of bed wear. Id sell it for $700 just to get rid of it, and you can pull the ways, have them reground for $500-600 and have a damned near new machine. Get yourself into a very nice machine for $1200 with steady rest, follower rest, 3 and 4 jaw chucks, 5c spindle nose and handwheel collet closer, I might even kick in a KDK QC tool holder. Its over here in Taft. and I can power it up for you no problem.
How about a Tree 300 CNC mill with possibly one bad servo? $500 and located in Palmdale. Koso International
Need any surface grinders? Ive got 2 easy project machines. $300 each OBO, your choice.

"I mean, when's the last time you heard of a college where the Young Republicans staged a "Sit In" to close down the Humanities building? On the flip side, how many sit in's were staged to close the ROTC building back in the '60's? Liberals stage protests, do civil disobedience, etc. Conservatives talk politely and try to work out a solution to problems through discourse until they believe that talking won't work... they they go home and open the gun cabinets. Pray things never get to the point where the conservatives decide that "civil disobedience" is the next step, because that's a very short route to "voting from the rooftops" Jeffrey Swartz, Misc.Survivalism
