    Talk me out of this Chinese Mill?

    I would like to cut some brass/aluminum and came across this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33008529077.html

    I was holding out for the new bantam tools machine but was a little unimpressed for the price. I am comfortable tinkering around and have already build a modified Seninci LongMill for wood. I am also playing around with the idea of a 6040z base and add servos/spindle. I just need one dimension to be at least 400mm any ideas?

    That is a good solid mill if it has the travels you need you won't fine anything better for the money and is way better than any 6040 will ever be it's all cast iron to start with

    Thanks for the response. Have you seen anyone with one on the board or other places?

    My father had experience with such mill. Not bad at all.
