It’s here! The milling machine is now at The MakerBarn

The Sieg Super X3 is now at The MakerBarn.  It has a longitudinal travel of 17″, crossfeed of 5.75″ and the head can be moved 15″.  All three of these movements are displayed on the DRO.  The quill has a travel of 2.75″ and has its own digital readout.  We should be able to do some very precise work on this machine. What’s your first project going to be?

Soon I’ll post a shopping list for those expendable tools each member may want to buy.  The shop will provide clamp-kits, vises, chucks, collets, and other larger items.
