Good Value Milling On A BudgetI have been constantly amazed at the usefulness of the MF70. As mentioned by others, the table bends when a vice is tensioned on it. Also the motor is grossly underpowered at 150w, it labours and smells under load, The head flexes under load. Cutting diameter is only 3.2mm, so the machine is limited in job size. However, it can mill for long periods, produce 1 thou accuracy and a huge leap in productive capability for the average hobbyist. A real classic homosapien tool. If Proxxon upped its spec with bigger motor, steel dovetailed head, 10mm collets and a steel table, then nothing would touch it under a grand.
