  • Enco machinery

    Is anyone familiar with Enco's milling machines?

    They're running a sale on their 8x36 and I'm wondering how they compare to Jet.

    Have the Jet 836 it's a nice machine, but ... the grizzly 3616 looks to be more machine for less money - even paying the shipping it's less than the Enco on sale.

        Qsmdo,
        I purchased an Enco 9 x 42 change belt in 1992.
        The machine has fed the family and made many, many
        hobby projects.
        I've worn out two drawbars in that time.
        I suspect many of the common name brands are ok.
        The two Euromills I've been involved with had spindle bearing
        problems.

          That IS a nice machine, but the table travels put me off a bit.
          Another one of theirs that seems to be more of a direct comparison to the Jet is the model 6760.
          Speeds, size, travels, etc.

          Am I overlooking something really important?

              Certainly can't argue with success!
              And you're lucky to have that talent.
              Thankfully I'm in a position to look at a machine on this level to just screw around with and I've no doubt I'll never come near the capability of the machine.
              I just want to have fun!
              "HSM", that's me.
