eBay: Emco Compact 5 Tool Turret Changer 6 turning

Looking over eBay I see this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Emco-Compact-5 ... Swy2Bdmks5

This takes the 3in / 3ext turret on an Emco Compact 5 type CNC and turns to 6 external tool holders.

Who makes/made this turret? I sure don't want to choke down almost $800 to get the turret.

As far as I know the turrets were made by Emco, they are neat little machines and I keep an eye out to see if one pops up for the right price in my area.

Here is some good info on their history:
