|Hi, I'm a toolmaker/CNC machinist living in Minneapolis, MN. I recently bought a home in South Mpls. and now I am dreaming of having a machine shop in my basement. A bridgeport would be too large/heavy to get down there because the basement has no direct entry. So I have been researching smaller milling machines. The ZX45 looks about perfect for my needs.
Large table/ travel
1 phase motor
Under 1/2 ton total weight (not incl. bench)
Can be disassembled into more manageable pieces
Better price then comparable mill/drills (G0519/RF-45/Industrial Hobbies)
