In that case your situation is a bit different, it could be a fun toy to play with. If size is an issue this is a handy machine, I have seen some of the older Atlas horizontal benchtop machines and they were cute. If you have the space, odds are you can find a good old horizontal, with much more capacity, for the same money. I have seen a number of decent horizontal mills, half of them loaded with tooling, sell for about that much. People just don't want them as bad as a vertical.
I thoroughly disapprove of duels. I consider them unwise and I know they are dangerous. Also, sinful. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet retired spot and kill him.
