In Detail

A fine, high precision mill/drilling machine, an ideal companion to the SC2 lathe. Constructed in cast iron with a finely ground table with 12mm T slots, and ground and hardened slideways. The milling head and column can tilt to 45° left or right for compound angle milling or drilling. The ample power comes from a high torque, brushless 500W DC motor with variable speed, giving a spindle speed range of 100 - 2,500rpm. It also has a notably quiet running spindle belt drive system. The spindle has an internal 3MT bore to enable a large range of tooling to be used. The headstock quill has a fine downfeed control feature for milling and a rack and pinion downfeed system for drilling. A gas support strut holds the headstock in position. The table leadscrews are covered for protection against swarf and debris. There is a connection port on the headstock for the optional digital spindle speed display panel. Supplied with a drill chuck and arbor, safety guard, tools and three drawbars 10mm, 12mm, 3/8 Whitworth. This is a superb, small mill for the model engineer or school use.

Good machine

Having recently bought this machine I can only say that overall it is excellent little machine, with good features & is very easy to use. I am toolroom apprenticed trained[ be it a long time ago], I have found the X & Y axis having 0.15 m/m pitch & 75 divisions with 1.5m/m per revolution is confusing when trying to establish a distance with a two decimal point digits [eg 56.21 mm]. You have to work out the number of revolutions required by dividing the figure by 1.5 & then working out the remainder for the distance left after takingaway the number of revolutions distance from the original required measurement. Not difficult but ponderous & dosn't look right when you've done it. Both myself & toolmaker friend spent a long time convincing us we had got it right. We are both recently retired engineers/toolmaker so maybe we are locked in an imperial mind set. Other wise thoroughly enjoying using the machine.
