Price and availability is an issue in Yuma as well. I do know where there is a working Bridgeport CNC (Haidenhein Controls) for sale locally, but its not a steal. $3500. Not bad, but not great and I have no clue about the quality of the mechanicals of a machine that age. I had to drive several hundred miles to pick up my Hurco, which admittedly I got a smoking price on ($500 partially working), but that is an exception.
From what I have seen the Northern Midwest seems to have a lot of machines available compared to some other places.
