Yes they're a nice little mill. I prefer the older ones, mine's a 1951. Sorry to see your table got busted up like that. It might be worth getting it welded up. Mine's got some gouges, but I've got used to them and they don't affect anything.
I'd grab this one up, but funds are short right now.

PS - Is that a Jap-made vice on yours? Looks identical to the one that came with mine; it says 'Tool Importers Inc', NYNY. TYPE Milling vice, Japan, model 4-K'. Looks to be early 1970s or so. Decent enough vise.
cheers

OK, your vise it's very similar to mine, though I do see some slight differences. Here's an old pic showing mine.

PS - I have the 360* base for the vise, but don't normally use it.

BTW, I heard through the grapevine that the little mill has found a good home. 8>)
