A game. - Object being to find the 'Mankiest' machine tool offered for sale.

While I realise that what maybe junk to one person may be a prized sought after item by another. So lets not get too serious and keep this light hearted.

Extra points will be awarded for humor. (winner will receive a decapitated garden gnome and a bag of jelly babies) laugh

Hows this for starters - **LINK**

"used condition, but all moves freely and only surface rust on parts........"

Some of the machinery advertised as being in good condition would not only make a good boat anchor but would appear to have been used as such for many years.

Re the eBay links... does anyone have problems viewing eBay... it seems as though their website formatting has gone to pot ... all I'm getting is listing down the left hand side, pics are there...just, but their webpage is no where like the eBay web site I saw last week, properly formatted in all it's glory. I'm not the only one that seems to be having problems according to VM media forum I checked today?

It ain't the best condition though is it.? 450.00.!!!! - I think somebody would have to have been consuming illegal pharmacutical products to press the 'buy it now' button.

As an added bonus it looks to have been covered in that product of the devil called Hammerite. face 7

While looking around for a Meddings a year or so ago, I found this drill press for sale, on ebay I think.

In the description the seller commented 'it has the usual marks to the table'!!!!!!!

Just seen on ebay another gem. A Harrisson and described as "The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended."
