I don't know if you are interested in a Berco RSC 950, I have 2 and am considering selling 1.

Thank you for the reply. We do high end aluminum heads and need a machine with spindle and feed control (VFD for PCD cutter) and a small foot print. This is why the Comec RP 850 is appealing. The new price offered by the USA dealer is very high for what a surfacer really is--simple but a single purpose machine. The Comec RP 850 has a 13" diameter cutter capacity head and the widest heads we do are right at 12".

We can purchase a new large table knee mill that will do the job for less than $10K. We already have two knee mills which do a bunch of work for us and really do not have the room for a third mill dedicated to head resurfacing.

I believe the Berco RSC 950 is an excellent machine but needs a lot of up-dates/modifications to fit our needs.
