Re: Enco Rong Fu sale mill/drill
- Forgot to mention, I too have an RF round column (RF25) and to minimize the need to reposition the head, I got an ER25 full collet set and collet chuck (approx $70 at ctctools. This pretty much eliminates the need for a drill chuck or end mill holders.
- Well if you ever want to rent out your nephews, let me know. All I have is a 16 year old son, pretty dang smart but just getting into his growth...

I decided to look a little longer and put off ordering until the last day of the sale. Well something came up on Craigs list and today I put money down on a Grizzly model G0729 which has the power feed table. It is located only about 20 minutes from my house. I should pick it up this weekend. It should be a challenge getting it loaded on a trailer or pickup and home into my garage. Does anyone know if these are easily broken down into slightly smaller parts?

The person that owns it showed me a hole in the vertical column and said the way it was moved itÂ was to put a steel bar through the hole and attach a sling and move it with an engine cherry picker. Has anyone done this? I am open for suggestions. Thanks for all the feedback on my original question. I hope I have made a good decision.
