    Question Precision Matthews PM1127VF, or similar; and PM-940M-PDF or similar

    Are there other, re-branding of the lathe that Precision Matthews lists as PM1127VF ?

    Similar question about the mill, PM-940M or PM-940M-PDF ?

    Any input would be helpful before my final decisions.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info. I went to their site and saw the description of the machine; I was hopeful, but could not find an operator's manual. I guess that's the way it is with narrow margin merchandise.

    I was in search of the module of the change gears.

    For the CX701 it looks like the change gears are 1.5 module and comes with (80, 30, 75, 25, and 80)-teeth gears. There is a fixed 40T, 1.5 module, on the spindle. I don't see the 45T, 50T nor 63T, nor 70T in the parts diagrams.

    Not clear what the gear spec is for the 1127.

    It's not real clear what does come with the machine. If anyone has received a machine, could you post the change gears that are included with you machine?

    Thanks. They look like the same machine. The information that I was after is in the referenced manual. The manual at the 1127 site does not have the page pertaining to the change gears. According to your reference, it looks to me like the change gears are 1.5 module, but that could be just for that machine.

    Also the manuals differ in the summary page: one says metric 3.5mm and the other says 3.0mm is the max thread, but both manuals show identical thread charts.
