I have been looking for a cost effective Mill drill, not being interested in a mini mill, I needed something larger. Most of the mills in the size that I was looking at were well over a grand. I have had my eye on this model at Harbor Freight, only to find on the Internet Web site that they have been discontinued.
However several of the Retail outlets still had them. The Mill costs $399.00 The Stand was another $80.00 not a necessity but a nice option, and of course I am not big on maintenance agreements, but with HF stuff I tend to get them, as they are complete "replacement" agreements. Wonder how they are going to do that since my item is discontinued (if something happens).
Anyway to make a long story longer, The sales associate gave me this deal, (conditional on purchasing the maint. agreement. (that is how they make thier $$$)). The deal was out the door tax and all
Mill,Stand,Maintenance agreement, Rotating angle vice. $415.0
