I used it for making boxes for about 3h straight the other day. It runs slower than the Chinese mill but while it’s cutting I glue the boxes together and box up orders. The machine can actually keep up with me.
I think the mill was a good buy. It’s slower, less accurate, has more backlash but for many jobs, it can get the work done.
There is a wobble problem on the Z axis and the Y and X axis have quite a bit of play. The Y axis also started binding the other day at the far back extreme. I had to reduce the acceleration and maximum speed of the axis to get it to finish the job I was on. The supplier has agreed to send me new parts. He’s in Canada so it shouldn’t be too hard to work it out.
