    Default I think I got a great deal on a 9x49 milling machine.

    Hi folks,

    I'm a professional machinist with 25 years experience.

    I have a Logan 7500 chucker 14" lathe. Now I have a milling machine to accompany it. A MSC 9x49 milling machine. I know, I know it's no Bridgeport. But it is brand new and I only paid $2,925 for it. It has no power feeds or DRO. It is 2hp 3phase.

    Here it is. https://www.ebay.com/itm/9-x-49-Vari...72.m2749.l2649


    I have pictures of it in my garage. I'll try to post them tomorrow.

    I'm pretty excited.

    Yup, from where I sit that's a deal! Congrats!

    That qualifies you for the 'you suck' posting of the week. !!
    Put a VFD on that and you got a sweet variable speed machine !

    Oh yeah? Well I am a retired machinist with 50 years in the business. OK, enough comparing weenie sizes and now down to the matter at hand *LOL*

    That LOGAN looks exactly like the JET 9 X 42 I bought about 10 years ago. I paid about $4200 for it new and delivered with no power feed or DRO. I got it factory with single phase (my request) and mine didn't have the variable speed head either.

    Mine has performed flawlessly and has remained tight over the years. I think you got a hell of a deal. I would certainly recommend this mill to someone looking for a Bridgeport alternative.

    Nice.

    You are right, it's no Bridgeport, and compared to my Bridgeport, that's a good thing. Nice mill!

    Bridgeport is the Kleenex of milling machines. No better than most mills out there but has name recognition.

    Looks like a nice machine.
    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-
