    heard anything about the company
    Be careful and read the specs as this says;-
    All linear axes are connected directly to the trapezoidal screw with the right
    Coupled motors and provide a feedback-free driving.
    but lower down :=
    Our milling and engraving with high precision
    Ballscrew offer high precision and accuracy.
    and spindle
    HF Spindle 1500 W / 24000rpm
    then in delivery section
    Spindle CauCau 850 W
    To cut MDF you really need a cutting speed of about 4-5 Mtr/min minimum they are saying the max speed is 1.2Mtr/min

    Hi Clive I have asked them to clarifie just waiting on an answer (think something is lost in translation...I was looking at it with the 1.5kw spindle fitted as that's what a HF is supposed to have..think they have copied and pasted the advert from others. The size and price hits the mark and delivery is a bonus...but I know little about them otherwise tBH
