    Default Euro mill on ebay

    For those of you hankering for a Schaublin/Deckel/Thiel/Maho type mill there's a Prvomajska Deckel clone on eBay at the moment. It has many of the rare and hard to get attachments. Smoking deal at the current price, too.

    eBay item 120719907891

    (For reference, I paid (a lot) more that for my similarly equipped FP-1 and thought it a great deal.)

    A nice bit of kit. Slotting head, universal table, could be a high speed head sitting on the ground. I reckon you'd have to be Mandrake to find 900mm of travel hidden somewhere though.

    Mandrake, eh? Now there's a name I haven't heard in a long while. You can get 900mm of travel if you hoist it up 500mm and then drop it, but that's a once-only procedure.

    Well hello GQ,

    I looked at that mill and dismissed it as being rubbish. I don't have your keen eye for detail.

    I'm surprised the seller didn't take more care with photos. Really good shots would have to increase the chances of a good price.

    What's a Yugoslovian mill doing with a data plate written in English?

    Would the vertical head from this machine be adaptable to your mate's mill?

    That machine was widely exported back in the day, Ken. Made in Zagreb, so it was probably half the cost of the Deckel. Tony's site gives loads of info; I reckon it would be a great machine. A high quality dividing head like it has would cost circa $500 on ebay, the slotter is vey handy, etc etc. If I didn't have my Deckel I'd be all over that like a bad odour.

    WRT to the vertical head: Yes it would make the heart of exactly what's needed, but it will go for lots more than you can find vertical heads alone.

    For the sake of posterity and to increase the value of this thread as a reference, the mill in question sold for $3050.00. It had a dividing head, vertical head, slotter and what appeared to be a high speed head. Some cutters and arbors were included, as well as a simple boring head. Not shown or listed were the horizontal supports for the horizontal spindle and the dividing head.

    And a Hercus No.O sold for a touch more! Funny old world we live in.
