Ghost Gunner Machine Questions....

I picked up a brand new Ghost Gunner Machine in a lot of auction stuff, anyone have any experience with one of these?
It appears to be set up for AR-15 type lowers, I would be interested in talking to anyone that's used one.

Trying to decide if it's worth keeping or simply resell or repurpose it.

If you plan on making a mess of 80% lowers into usable guns it is a nice tool to have. If not then you might find a new home for it or rent it out to those who want to make some guns.
Most people just buy the jigs because they are only making one or two.

It's not even been assembled, so it's unused.
I'm a machinist by trade, I have zero use for it. Guess I'll try to find it a home.
Can we sell something like this on the for sale forum?

I don't see why not. It is just a specialized milling machine.

I'm so far behind times. I had to look it up.

Really small CNC machine that cuts dry, so it cuts slow.
I'm not going to jump through the paperwork to do firearms manufacturing, and it's too small to do much of anything else with 6 Full Size HAAS machines sitting on the shop floor now, no point in it for me.
Someone that did small 'One Of' or 'Widget' manufacturing might have a use for it...
