Looks to me like a Benchmaster. I used one similar to it for many
years while doing industrial modelmakeing. With imagination there is
no limit to what you can make with it (within the limits of it's
size).

Call the guy back in two weeks. Ask him if he's come to his sences yet. I've
got many things for 1/4 of the first asked price this way.

Well, I wouldn't actually ask *that*. He might not sell it to you out of
spite. Just ask if the mill s still available and offer whatever you're
willing to pay.
