I've had this Mill for just over 2 years. It does work well, but now out of no where it's completely lost power. Now I have a new machine I can not use. I've only used it maybe a dozen times. The fuse holder in the rear broke off Aswell. Had it repaired and still no power to anything. Yes I tested the power outlet! Never had issues with my lathe thank god. (ADMIN: Thanks for your review. Please contact our Customer Service Department as this machine carries a 3 year warranty. We can take care of any issue you are having)
I got my mill a number of months ago and have been very satisfied with it. It makes a nice mach for my cx 700 lathe. The customer servise has been great at answering any questions about lubrication or anything else that might have been omitted from the owners manual. Recently I had a brush in the motor fail (quit well built, just luck i guess) and was delighted to find that nothing more than a quick phone call was necessary for them to ship a new set of brushes to me for free.
I just got my mill and have already put it to good use and am very happy with the quality of work it can produce. For a small machine it has a big heart and is very easy to use and understand. I am very happy with my purchase and forsee many projects coming to completion in the future.
I was using a mini mill for a long time and decided to purcahse this CXmachine. Everything has been as advertised and I have really enjoyed going to this machine daily. It is very precise and has all the cabilities I need. I machine a lot of small parts and even though I would love a larger mill, there is no need for me and this has done everthing I have thrown at it. Thanks.
