      I am presently restoring a Clausing 8520. There is NO comparison
      between it and a mini-mill! Go for the 8520! It is a true mill, not just
      a small parts hobby mill. It also is much better than the
      mill-drills. The knee makes height changes a snap, whereas the mill-drills
      require re-aligning to the workpiece if the head is raised or lowered.

      You can see what I've done so far on my Web site (address below).
