I've got a Grizzly G0516 combo lathe/mill. Today the UPS guy dropped a 60 lb box in the driveway: http://littlemachineshop.com/products/product_view.php?ProductID=1765&category=

My little mill now has it's own place in the shop and the lathe isn't nearly so cluttered. I did lose the powerfeed for the X axis (the lathe carriage) so will look into replacing that. On the other hand I have much more room to work, a much larger table, and hopefully better accuracy.

I made the same move about a year ago. Made BIG difference to the usability of the machine.
Now you need to order the Part # 1486 which is a 14" Z rack. Cost is $19. It will give you about 3 more inches of Z room, well worth the effort and only takes about 15 minutes to install. Order the extra screws with your order.
But now I'm ready to move to bigger mill and just need to decide which one I can afford to buy.
