Hi guy's, Just wondering if any of you regular visitors to this site own or have used the #3616 Grizzly Vertical Milling Machine,,which is sold in Australia under various other brand names by various Tool & Machinery Distributors, would appreciatte all opinions, good or bad on any problems or pitfalls with this machine,??? Realise it's not a Bridgeport or Tree, but with a little tweaking & re-working what are my chances of ending up with serviceable machine??
Look forward to hearing from all, TIA.Best Regards, Jack Erskine. Precision Reel Engineering. Cairns. Australia.

Well, I can't help you specifically with the 3616, but I recently purchased a 4027, and I'm quite happy with it.

It's tight, sturdy, accurate and reasonably well built. I have a page with some brief descriptions and a few closeups Here (http://www.docsmachine.com/machineshop/newmill1.html).
