G’day everyone,

Today I am going to be giving my thoughts on my Mini Mill that I have been using for almost half a year now. I bought it near the end of May 2021 and I have used it almost every day, making many little projects and lathe upgrades, many I have shared here on he channel.

Having used long enough, I now feel comfortable sharing my experience with this mini milling machine. Ill go through its specs, capabilities and quirks, as well as the pros and cons that I have run into. I will also try and give an assessment to the question, is an import mill like this worth it. I will also try and compare this mill to the more popular, but smaller Sieg X2 and SX2 variants, and detail why I chose this mill over those.

They are a large investment and still run the risk of quality issues. I hope you find this video useful.

Cheers.
