It looks a bit like the later Emco machines Spro, and being Swiss I'd guess very well made. Not one I've seen before either.Variable headstock height would make it a small light weight semi horizontal boring machine as well. You should check out Tom Lipton (Oxtoolco) on Youtube and his video of his horizontal jig borer he did a few years ago. I didn't even know they made proper jig borers in the horizontal orientation. With the addition of a variable height tailstock to his there's not much in a home shop that couldn't be machined. And with a fairly small foot print do it all without having a lathe, horizontal mill, drill press, etc. I could certainly find room for that Wahli machine if I found one.
