Been keeping an eye out for a Clausing 8520 for some years now, I was lucky to spot one listed and secure the unit. Very well built and sought after "little" knee mill, this one came complete with a ratiotrol VFD and factory power feed. Haven't run it yet, I've just spun the motor up to test the VFD.

Nothing like a full auto mill and one that can rotate the head, miss working at my old Tec College, I only have a cheap mill drill and no auto feed going to upgrade soon when I find one for the right price, but I have a few mates who have good milling machines if I need to do bigger jobs.
I worked in maintenance for over 15 years and have always serviced and rebuilt milling and lathes was my main job keeping all the machine working in the machine workshops and I was only the T/A to the Fitters lol.
Looks like a good machine, hope it don't have to much wear and tear in the slides, I am sure you have some fun with it.
