Follow up: I ended up purchasing the takisawa. It was in excellent condition and the only issue when I inspected it was an air leak in the atc system.
Turns out the Fanuc 6MB controller didn't like the 246v I was getting from the power company. The transformer it came with couldn't be wired to correct for this so I purchased a 3ph 9kva transformer which fixed the problem. The ATC worked when I saw the demonstration but now it looks like a dead switch. I hope to be making parts by next week when my vises arrive.
I previously owned a Tormach so this is a major step up in milling hp.
