      Does anyone know anything about a bench mill made by Johansson. I don't know any more than that. There is one for sale not far from my house.


      Is this a brand that I should consider looking at or should I stay away from this manufacturer?

      Take a look at:   http://www.lathes.co.uk/clausing%20vertical/index.html     These small milling machines are highly desirable and generally cost a lot more than you would think because of that.  Otherwise, if the size fits the scope of your intended use, buy it.  They are a good mill.  Nothing you should stay away from.  I'd say they are better than an equivalent 'made in China '  mill.  Take a good look at the slop; on the lead screws and run-out on the spindle, etc. etc. just like you would on any used machine.
