I saw that one too. Couldn't find anything on the web about Black Snake Tools. Noticed it didn't sell the first time.
Heres another one I was interested in:

These both don't have a square column though I wonder if thats really a big deal though. I have used many Knee mills with round columns before don't really understand why it's such a big deal? If you think about it rationally if a round column is keyed then what disadvantage is the round column. Keyways are a means to either transfer motion or stop motion right?

Looks like a RF 45 or clone that has been retrofitted.
