Although these pictures are very small and bad (its what i have been given) what can you say about this 1300x2500 Cnc Router machine, construction quality, etc.
I dont know the company that makes it, the only thing I know is the worksize. And im tempted to make a trip to get it, but i really need your help and opinions.

Unfortunately I do not recognise the machine at all - is is described as a Euromod? It doesn't resemble any of the ISEL machines I know of and the construction is not as per ISEL systems (it looks like it has exposed linear rails for example).
Sorry I can't be of any help - it looks like a nice solid machine though!

Prob an ok machine if the price is right, certainly a good starting point for modifiying/improving. To me it looks like an older chinese built machine, similer anyway. It has Hiwin profile rails and possibly rack and pinion drive on the x and y.
The size is great as you can use full sheets of ply, which is great for hack spaces as a lot of people design projects around 8 by 4 sheets.
I you are looking for a guide price I would guess around £1000-2000 if it doesn't work and maybe a little more if it does. You can buy these new from china for £6000 so don't pay over the odd.
A vacuum pump may be under that black plastic which would be a bonus, but I know the chinese ones do not work very well. A good vacuum pump for this machine could set you back £1000-1500 second hand or £2500 new.
It looks like there is no tool changer but that would also be a nice bonus if it does.

Shapebuster: Sorry don't know the make but Like others say it looks like chinese type machine but resonably well built, thou if that is the price then it's not really worth that sort of money unless it's fully working with Tool changer and Vacuum pump pump and even then I think it's not overly cheap.
The deal is done. Im going to pick it up monday for 3000GBP, with a vacuum but no tool changer. Machine is said to be working like new, but the person who is selling the machine its not the owner, but someone who has all the closed company machinery and equipment for sell.
with this price i will also buy the computer and lcd, a spray painting and drying chamber, and some tools.
What should i look for in the machine regarding its possible hidden problems?

Shapebuster: 3K seems fair price if it's all working.
Things to look out for are just the obvious like Rusty rails, Sloppy linear bearings so grab them firmly and feel for movement, Worn teeth on Rack and Pinion, Check spindle turns freely and again grab firmly at nose and feel for movement.
Less of a concern but still worth Checking if wires are brittle or chewed by mice etc if it's been stood for some time.
Hope it works well for you.!
You know in Portugal its not easy to get this machines (at least bigger ones) and they are overpriced. Most of them its bought by professional machinery resellers.
It looks like a very good business. The seller has a lot of stuff he wants to get rid of, and i will be taking a pickup truck and an extra trailer to take what i might use.
If everything goes well (this weekend i will build a heavy duty pallet to load the machine, and i believe that with a trailer that is 3m long a winch, and a pallet lift i will be able to load the machine in the trailer. I will wrap it with clear plastic and hold it firmly for the 300km travel.
If all goes well i will be posting a new post with the machine!
Its great, because im building a CoWork/Makers space, and a lot of the interior furniture will be done by me in the cnc, straight from Rhino.
After with the machine in my possession, i will have new concerns: how will i be able to use Rhinocam with the CNC, do a full machine revision and maintenance, etc.
