Based on recommendations from the Yahoo Mill/Drill forum, I ordered a X power feed from HARBOR FREIGHT for $199. Some people say it is the same unit that is sold by Enco and others for $299-$399. Unfortunately it is backordered until 5-31-02. What other power feeds do you recommend for the G1006 (a RF31 clone?) with a 5/8 X shaft? This is a low usage machine (40 hours a year) so I don't need the best. I also know you get what you pay for! Thanks for any suggestions.

You could roll your own, if so inclined. Even a gear drive motor with a router speed control on it will do a descent job. If you have the inclination stepper motors are a dime a dozen in many scrap yards - build a power supply and driver and go for it.
