    Glad I got this one!!;))))

    Posted by Denis.S. on 12th Oct 2014

    Having been looking for a suitable milling machine for a while
    , I took the time to compare all the possible candidates out there .
    Having owned a mill-drill type in the past , I was ready to upgrade to a stiffer more capable knee-type machine. And im very satisfied with my choice .
    I was debating between the 603 and the 602 ,,, well Im VERY happy I got the 603! well worth the extra $
    The 603 is a heavy, quality built machine with plenty of travel and very precise.
    The dial are crisp and easy to read , the finish is spot on , solid and well put together.
    Having worked with it for the past month and a half, can say its all there.
    Everything is within specs , runs tight with min. vibration , and Im on a wooden floor,,,
    the machine is well designed with predrilled caped holes for the cooland pump in the column , it also has a predrilled and caped base drain , just pop it out,
    I ordered the power feed , for it , and it fits very well and easy to install , just dont use the supplied mounting bracket , its a universal kit ,with pleanty of hardware , I also got the coolant system , very good quality and easy to install kit.
    The speeds are well spaced out for general work , I would say that its a 60 Hz motor so the quoted speeds are wrong on the description , its 270- 3200 RPM
    but thats not a big problem , I find it better for working with smaller dia. end mills:) 12 speeds would have been easy to supply ,just a extra step on the motor pully , but OK , ill live with it,
    The only thing I can really say about the 603 is the tee slots are 1/2 inch ,,,,,,
    a bit on the small side for such a big machine, I was expecting 5/8 tee slots ,,,
    ( yes I know! I have 2 sets of 5/8 clamping kits from the previous machine!!!thats why im talking about it!) but once you get a new kit you
    quickly forget about it :)

    Overall ,Im VERY SATISFIED with the 603 , I would highly recommend the 603 over all other machines in its operating range and price.

    Buzzy Bee service is excellent

    Bravo to all the team
