    Anyone have any experience with one or know anyone who has?

    I'm looking to upgrade from my Rutland bench-top drill press to a full size but I also need a small mill for doing second ops. I don't have room for both so this looks like it would fit my needs but I cannot find a single review or discussion.

    I have previously owned a column head mill so I am aware of the pros & cons of that.

    The one on the showroom floor at Grizzly looks very solid, well built. No experience operating one.

    Do you find yourself needing a drill where you can swing the table out of the way for tall items? Something that wouldn't fit in a bench top drill press?

    Just curious what would lead you to this instead of a (similarly priced) square column mill-drill?

    Thanks Tim. I need a larger drill press for tall items and a small manual mill for doing light machining and second ops on CNC parts. The problem is I am maxed out for room and can only fit one so this looks like a good compromise.
