This package deal comprises an Axminster Engineer Series SX3 Mill/Drill, Axminster Engineer Series Powerfeed and Floor Stand
Axminster Engineer Series SX3 Mill/Drill
The SX3 is an advanced mill/drill with a tilting head, digital spindle speed, downfeed readouts and a thread tapping facility. It is a compact and well made machine, ideal for the experienced model engineer or a small engineering workshop. The rectangular cast iron column, equipped with dovetail guides for the milling head, is a very substantial section and guarantees accurate, chatter-free performance. The position of the vertical feed control wheel is easily to hand on the base. This wheel controls coarse adjustment, while a second wheel on the head, controls the fine feed.
A 1,000W DC high torque motor drives the spindle via a digital, electronic, push-button, speed controller. The SX3 also features forward/reverse spindle direction. Buttons on the downfeed levers control the thread tapping facility. All control wheels are smooth in operation. The scales graduated in steps of 0.02mm, allow for some very precise machining. The SX3 comes with a 1-13mm drill chuck, ER32 collet holder. It has a 3MT quill for fitting milling chucks or other items of tooling.
Axminster Engineer Series Powerfeed
A very useful powerfeed system for the X-axis to provide a smooth, variable speed drive to the traverse of the table. This ensures much greater control of the cut finish, compared to feeding manually. The controls for left and right movement are simple and movable stops provide auto stop in any position on the table. The switches have protection to IP67 allowing the use of a coolant system. The powerfeed is simple to fit to the mill and powered by a standard 230V plug, so requires no additional wiring.
Axminster SX3 Mill Floor Stand
This cabinet stand has shelves for storing tooling and a lockable door. It provides a stable base for the mill drill and a comfortable working height. It features a built-in swarf/drip tray. Some assembly required.
