In Detail

Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is a different type of mill, able to work either vertically or horizontally. Horizontal mills excel at making linear cuts such as slots, shoulders, grooves, splines, keyways and gear teeth. This machine is compact yet powerful. It is fitted with the proven 500W DC brushless motor and electronic control from the SX2 mill which gives very high torque, even at the lowest spindle speed. Belt driven and extremely quiet, the belt serving as a shock absorber in the event of a mishap. In vertical mode, the headstock is held in a sliding overhead arm, which allows the spindle to be placed over the bed to the required positions. The headstock also tilts 45° left or right. The spindle has a speed range of 200-2,000rpm. Unusually, the table has a vertical rise and fall, allowing ample clearance under the spindle. The table surface is precision ground and has 12mm T-slots. To change from vertical to horizontal mode takes around 2 minutes and an arbor is provided to take slotting cutters etc. All sliding faces are dovetailed and adjustable for accuracy, ensuring a long life. For the model engineer who needs to take advantage of the horizontal milling facility this machine could be invaluable.
