different brand. Mine was a good design tho poorly finished. The
bearings in the geared head were hammered in place and needed
replacing. The motor had no oil seal to stop gear oil entering. The
horizontal spindles had no retention groove. Some brackets were poorly
made, but for the price I paid, I couldn't get a bigger bang for the
buck. All problems were easily corrected and I'm quite happy with it.
Spindle tapers were ISO30 instead of R8 but it came with a good set of
collets and 2MT and 3MT adaptors so that hasn't been a problem. Table
size was 31 x 9 which is pretty good and it swivels which is a feature
that I thought I'd never use but has come in handy. Be aware that they
are HEAVY - about 1750 lbs.
