Model Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

All you need to get milling straightaway. The Model Engineer Series SX2 Mini Mill Starter Package comes with the SX2 Mini Mill, a 50mm Super Precision Vice and three carbide end mills, 4mm, 6mm and 10mm.

The SX2 MIni Mill is 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 3 drawbars 10mm, 12mm, 3/8 Whitworth. This is a superb, small mill for the model engineer.

A high quality precision vice made from close grained high tensile seasoned cast iron and have a scratch and rust resistant finish forms part of the package. The jaws, made from steel hardened to 55+/-3 HRC and ground with a parallelism of 0.0012" (30 microns), hold the workpiece dead square for perfect results. The vice body rotates horizontally 360° against a scale and can be locked securely in the set position. There are two slots for securing the vice to the machine table as well as a slot milled across the base to assist in accurate location. Bodies are dismountable from the circular bases. It is 50mm wide by 25mm deep with 50mm opening.

The 4mm, 6mm and 10mm end mills are made from carbide; they last longer than standard high speed steel (HSS) cutters and produce an excellent finish. Carbide cutters like to be worked hard and, depending on the material, coolant is essential for the quality of cut and life of cutter.
