    Did anyone say they only made s series II clone? I just said that was one I had & the one I posted the ad for. I don't know anything about the smaller ones. Sorry

    Lotta fitted parts to a turret mill head but in reality they are not much more complicated than a toaster. Any one with mechanic skills and a sense of cleanliness can diagnose and repair a back=gear problem. Take note and pictures.

    I have a Supermax Series 1 BP clone. I cant comment on how they compare to BP as this is my first mill.

    NOTED problems: Changing the Hi/Lo speed can be hit/miss sometimes. It wasn't until recently I discovered that if I change into high range the speed changes reliably if I just grab the quil and turn it by hand...drops right into gear.
    I've noticed some table movement when making heavy cuts into steel....MOST likely operator error.

    That's it. The manual lube pump works well, the weighs (dovetail type, not box) seem to be well cut. Its wired for 3 phase so you'll need to spend a little money on a phase converter. This winter I'm going to give a VFD a try.
    The table operates smoothly and tolerances seem plenty tight at least for the ham handed things I make.

    I have a manual for it...sing out if you need me to make you a copy.

    Thats standard with the back gear on any knee mill, you have to move the spindle till the clutch lines up.
