I started out years ago with the common import mini-mill and mini-lathe. I ended up selling both of them before our recent move. I looked for a used Bridgeport for over a year, missed a couple, but overall I guess my timing was bad because I came up empty handed.
After much research, I decided to go with the G0755 mill (A Rong Fu clone).
And this is where it landed after being unloaded via freight delivery. It came with power-feed on the X-axis and has a powered Z as well. Overall I’ve been pleased with the machine. When you buy an import, your are really buying a project or a kit that needs to be finished (IMO). Knowing that going in will save you some frustration.
