Well I had my 440 for 2 years and learned more than I ever imagined possible about CNC, ( 2 years ago I couldn't spell CNC ) I felt like I was ready and would enjoy having a heavier machine to do more and would like to play with 4th axis a bit so I was able to find a buyer for my 440 and ordered the 770M from Tormach.
It should be here today or tomorrow. it is going to be a bit of a challenge to get it into my small workspace but I'm looking forward to the challenge.
I'll post up some pictures of my progress when there is some.

How's the new 770M doing?
Hi, just noticed your post.
It is great ! It does what I expected, being able to take larger cuts and reduce cycle times with not being so limited on setting up is great. Larger travel is nice and I don’t think a machine is made with “enough” travel, seems I’m always wanting more. It’s a great time we live in I think, being able to have CNC at home for this cost is a dream.
