RF30 Mill needing a new home

Well my moving plans have hit a hiccup so I have now sold my house, but don't have a new one!! I spent the last few days packing up the house
house and workshop, but don't have room to store this mill and am therefore open to offers. I bought it four years ago from the good Mr Stevenson mainly as I needed the DRO for my other mill, but other than removing that, it is exactly as as John's original add which I have pasted below.
John's original description: ===================================Mill / Drill 30. It's the biggest one they do. Table 29 x 9 round column model. Three morse spindle. Many mods. Fitted powered table feed and quill feed.Drive by three step toothed belt drive with 240 v DC motor with commercial heavy duty controller. Takes single phase input. Speeds from 10 to 3,000 rpm, no gaps. Also fitted Heidenhain two axis DRO, this actually cost more than the mill drill. Bought for machining laser lens blocks hence the DRO. This machine now surplus to requirements, Obviously UK only. Buyer collects. Loading facilities available. 650 Pounds -- FIRM, - no offers - no tyre kickers - no time wasters. This is one of the older heavyweight models not the newer skimpy things. ==================================It is sitting on a pallet in Harlow Essex, but unlike John I don't have a forklift to help load it. The house is no longer mine from Friday 11th April so it needs to be gone by then, but it can be collected any time of day or night. Remove the word SPAM from my address to email me, or call 07725 442997.

PS Note the DRO is NOT included with the mill.
PPS There is also a full size snooker table in excellent condition if anyone is interested.

Cliff, I don't need the mill but if this is a "distress disposal" that you will come to regret when you have you new house, I could offer some storage space for a few months - warm and dry if you can get it to me near Southampton. Can't offer a similar facilty for a snooker table though!! Bob

Bob,
That is a great offer, but not needed as I already have another mill and plan to buy bigger toys once I have moved. So this isn't really a distress issue, more an irritation and hopefully someone on here can make good use of the mill.
Coincidently, a good friend of mine recently moved to Southampton so next time I am heading down I'll buy you a beer to say thanks for the offer.

I'd love to have the snooker table if I had anywhere to put it. The next house is going to be chosen with space for one being an essential requirement. Not one of the pissy 3/4 size ones either. I still have to achieve one of my ambitions of making a 50 plus break at snooker and the best to date is a 49 although that was 20 years ago and I haven't really played since. I'm not sure if either my eyesight or my potting ability are still up to it these days. I rather doubt it somehow.
