I am a truck driver for a roll forming company here in Michigan. The job takes me to many shops. One shop that I go to frequently had a powermatic/burke millright knee mill. I inquired about it and the shop foreman said it might be for sale and it hasn't been plugged in for many years as they had a Bridgeport in the shop as well. This was about 2 years ago, I made an offer and never heard anything. About 4 months ago the foreman approached me and said the owners were still wanting to sell the machine and would I still be interested in it, I said yes. 4 months goes buy and I still don't hear anything. One day I was at the shop making a delivery and the foreman was out sick, another employee and his helper took care of me. The older employee knew I had inquired about the mill again and asked if I had heard anything. I said no and told him my story and the history. His helper, a young kid, said hang on a minute and I'll be right back. He returned with a nice dressed man and said this is the owner and my dad. The owner knew me and the company that I work for. He asked if I was still interested in the mill, I said my offer would still stand, he accepted it and asked when I wanted to pick it up. My offer was $350.00. Well the rest is history and I now own the mill. It's in pretty good shape, table has a couple of small cutter marks but overall really nice shape. The knee won't go up or down but I can see the screw turning, so I don't think it is anything major. This is how she looked as she sat in the shop unused for years. Loaded on my work truck to take back to my shop. We loaded it with a hi-lo and straps, I unloaded it with a crane at my companys shop. It is still at my work, I will take it apart to bring it home. I am going to see if a few guys can move the base if it is stripped, if we can then maybe we can get it into my basement shop.
