The SX1 Micro Mill is a two function machine, operating either as a vertical mill or as a small pillar drill. The work can be either clamped directly onto the table with the aid of 8mm T-nuts, studs and clamping bars, or held in a suitable machine vice and then moved under the rotating milling cutter using the traversing controls on the table. There is a choice of coarse handle feed of the quill for drilling or fine screw control for precise setting of the milling cutter depth. The column can be tilted by up to 45° either side of vertical for angled machining. The choice of two spindle speed ranges, both with electrically variable control, gives considerable freedom in cutter diameter and material type. Although small in size, this machine, with its predominantly cast iron construction, is man enough to tackle a whole range of small tasks in the home model engineer's workshop and is an excellent companion to the micro lathe. It is supplied with 10mm capacity chuck, chuck key, drawbar and service tools. Drawbar thread is M10.
