Looks like SkyFire might be ready to lift off, which is GREAT for us Mikini folk. The same hardware (important for spares) but totally different electronics (which is what sucks on our machines!)...

Is this Phil going for round #2?

I would buy another Mikini for the right price knowing I would need to rebuild it somewhat. The mechanics are good.

No, this is the original designer of the mill. Phil bought the base machines from him, then fit his own electronics in the US. Skyfire is now building out the entire machine, and it is MUCH cheaper than the Mikini was. That said, it has been a bit of a saga for the original purchasers, having waited I think over a year after paying for their mills. Now those first machines are arriving at the customers to generally good reviews.
