10-4 on the space limitations. I fight that same type of battle and I'm fairly certain that I'm losing that war.ThunderDog, I have been keeping my eyes on everything on CL and FB Marketplace. I saw the Gorton and like it's size and price doesn't seem bad but my shop is the back half of a one car garage with a Model T in the other half, so the Gorton would take up some real estate. The other two look bigger than the Gorton. Been looking at some of the small benchtop horizontal mills like the one I previously posted from an unknown maker. He is up in Baltimore area and I'm going to try and see it on Sunday. There is also a really nice looking Atlas in Westchester, PA for $750 with some tooling. There is also a pretty cool Pratt & Whitney in Winchester but it uses an odd collet that is expensive and hard to find. I'm in no hurry since I have access to a vertical at The Foundery in Baltimore. In fact, I'm taking a metal cutting class there tomorrow night. If you are not familiar with them, check out www.foundery.com.
Looks like it's worth about as much as the Bridgeport head is worth.I found this on Craigslist. He said he is firm at $1,000, which is too much for me.
