Thats a rong fu 45 clone made in china. The genuine rong fu 45 is $2,800-$3,100 US. I just bought a rong fu 45 clone and spent some time researching them, my advice is get the Lathemaster clone at www.lathemaster.com,

I just purchased this mill $1,395 US. The lathemaster has a larger table, larger motor 2HP, and more travel than the one pictured above. Top RPM is also 2000 not 1500. It says 1500 on the lathemaster website and that was correct but this newest batch Bob received came with 2000rpm motors. Confirm with Bob though.

The lathemaster is also 730 pounds so its a bit heavier than the one above which is good. Here's a linke http://www.lathemaster.com/HEAVYDUTYMILLINGMACHINE%207045FG.htm

Here are some pics of my mill and the cnc kit I purchased from www.industrialhobbies.com
