    Thanks for the thought, but if you ( or anyone else on the forum ) want something, go ahead and bid for it, if you want it more than anyone else does, it's yours, I won't be offended.. don't back off on my account.

    In fact, I'm happy to help with collection and postage, assuming I'm going to be there collecting something of course...

    Exactly my thoughts Ray. It baffles me how someone can take an operational machine and then leave it out in the weather. Why not sell it or give it away before F*%$ing it up.....

    It happens more often than you think. Farm machinery is a classic. No room in the shed so it has to stay out in the weather. Before you know it the machine is buggered.
    I delivered a PAL mill and cholchester chipmaster lathe to a friend 2 months ago (given to him by his toolmaker uncle) but no room in his shed so left them outside. Still there to this day although he tells me they have a tarp over them. Should go back and get them and put them in my shed because I think they may never move! Plenty of people would love to have those machines (good quality and in good nick).

    My 10EE when at the previous owner lived outside and under a tarp for a few years.. There was minimal corrosion damage... It was not out in a paddock though... It was on cement...

    I would pay $100 for that Huron if it was local and could be loaded... Other then that is it worthless... A CNC mill would be a much more worthwhile investment.. Hurons while nice machines have had their day in the sun, but it is twilight for them now...

    I saw that Britannia. What are all the holes in the saddle, is there bits missing?
