HF cutting the prices on X3's
Discontinued? Get a X3 for around 600$ without any coupons. Hmmm.

Same applies to the X1 mill if you want a bargain get the coupon but do it NOW.

With the coupon the X1 and X3 are less than cost, I can't say any more, but you need to move NOW.

Good question. Don't matter to me, I can't afford one at the moment anyway.

That's a great price. You'd pay over $1400 (in 's equivalent) for a Sieg X3 from Axminster over here in the UK.

Seriously! I've heard that you can harangue the manager into letting you use the 20% coupons on special orders. That's pretty tempting for a donor CNC machine.

The SuperX3 doesn't really offer much if you're going to do a CNC conversion anyway...

Sieg has the X4, perhaps this is what all the hub bub is about...

Didn't even know that it's out:

Looks like a tweener between the X3 and the RF-45?

After calling about 10 different stores in the south, looks like the time has passed (at least for this region).

None of the stores have one laying around, the warehouse in NC is empty (so no special orders), and it's in their system as discontinued.

The question now is what will replace it... SX3? Thoughts?

The one Lazlo posted a lik to looks much like the new one from Grizzly at least at first glance.

I did hint at NOW, can't be fairer than that but if people want to work gums instead of feet not my worry.

Oh well would have been cool to get one and work on getting it setup for cnc. But I have more than enough projects currently.

Update on this:

They do still have some in the US... they couldn't tell me which warehouse, but there are some...

What that means is you can still get one via phone or online, at the $699 + shipping price (plus no 20% coupon).

Now I just have decide between this and the new Grizzly BF20 clone (G0704).

I was looking at the G0704 and was informed that the motor was DC and only at 1HP at top speed and at slower speeds, the torque reduces. It turned me off that machine. Maybe other, more knowledgeable folks on this site could provide more insight? Right now, I'm considering the Grizzly G0519.

So your saying these are still available? Price is $699 + shipping and no 2% coupon?

Yup.

When I called them on Wednesday, they told me they still had some in stock in some warehouse (couldn't tell me where)... which means you can still order one online/mail/phone assuming they're not all gone now.

Shipping to my place (north AL) was about $85, not including any liftgate fee. The 20% coupons won't work, they're only good in the stores.
