Good Value, Small unit

,
February 6, 2014
By DanDanTechnoMan
from Statesboro, Ga
"Surprising capabilities for a small unit. We are building a prototype unit and needed some metal items machined. We are using both the mill and lathe functions, both are working out well.
Wish it had a little bigger lathe chuck capacity, only two issues so far- the tool post support angular pivot locking bolts have stripped ( too low quality bolts ) and the adjustment screws for the tool bed are hard to adjust as they are small and recessed deep in the bed rails.
Overall would recommend unit to small shops for small tasks"

"Every Time I use it it serves me very well. I have had seven surgeries on my right wrist and I can't use a regular drill. This machine is the best tool I own. I am using it to help build a generator to power my home. I am building three stainless steel shafts to split atoms to generate electricity for my home. This machine does EVERYTHING I NEED IT TO DO.. Don't be a mooch. GET ONE TODAY............."

Handy to have

"I was building a 3 wheeler to use at the swap meets,and the little 2.8 hp. engine was not enough. i used this handy machine to build a jack-shaft set-up. boring out parts to a slide fit,cutting a keyway in a shaft. you just have to plan ahead to make sure you have the reach to do your milling. now it will move a person of any size,having one of these was handy to have."
