Walter from Starlight again, I had looked at getting one of these mills. I first was looking at the round column mill that KBC Tools sells as it had the power downfeed, but they wanted a whack of freight as it had to be shipped from Toronto. Then I contacted Rick at Modern in Vancouver and he quoted the ZX45 in the R8 version for $2995.00 CDN. He also suggested I would be happier with a vertical knee mill in the long run. He did not have the 10x50 in stock, but their Calgary branch did, so they suggested I deal with Calgary to get the mill, turns out that the South Eastern corner of BC is in the Calgary territory.
I have a few clients with the square column mills and am on the yahoo groups for them and they are very capable machines. Mind you I have pushed the limits of the 10x50 and in hindsight, would have been sort of hog tied if I had gone with a smaller mill.
