In the process of buying the Busy Bee Craftex CX601 milling machine. It's got a 33"x 8.2" table, a 1.5 hp DC motor with a spindle stroke of 2.7". Collet size is R8. It's also 110 volts but I have to go with that due to my "electrical access" limitations. It's not considered to be a mini-mill. I'll be using it for hobbyist type of activities. Getting it at a very, very good price which has been my major consideration.
Does anyone know what a similar mill might be in Harbour Freight, Grizzly, etc brands? Who is the Chinese manufacturer? Any comments as to performance, capabilities, limitations?
