Package deal comprises the Axminster Engineer Series SX3 Mill Drill DIGI and the Axminster X3/Super X3 Floor Stand.
Axminster Engineer Series SX3 Mill Drill DIGI
The SX3 DIGI is an even more advanced mill/drill with the added benefits of a 3 axis digital read-out (DRO) system for the table position (X & Y) and headstock height (Z). All the other standard features of the SX3 are here including a tilting head, digital spindle speed, downfeed read-outs and a thread tapping facility. It is a compact and well made machine which is ideal for the experienced model engineer or a small engineering workshop, and is used for courses in our Skill Centre. The rectangular cast iron column, equipped with dovetail guides for the milling head, is a very substantial section and does guarantee accurate, chatter-free performance. One excellent feature of this mill is the positioning of the vertical feed control wheel - on the base where it is easily to hand. On the SX3-DIGI the coarse adjustment is made with this control wheel whilst the fine feed is carried out via a wheel on the head itself. The control wheels are smooth in operation and the scales are graduated in steps of 0.02mm, allowing for some very precise machining. The machine is supplied with a 1-13mm drill chuck, ER32 collet holder and there is a 3MT in the quill for fitting milling chucks or other items of tooling. Accessories available are a cabinet stand with shelves and lockable door, and a kit of clamps, nuts, studs and spacers for clamping the work to the table.
