    I am still considering which mill to get.
    One of my biggest problems is the space I have available in my garage workshop.

    Can someone with a Seig sx2.7 take measurements please and save me a 150 mile round trip with my tape measure?

    How much floor space do I need to get full travel of the bed, and have enough room to work if the mill is located against a wall?

    I see some people advocating putting a mill in the corner of the workshop - Is this a good idea? Again, what is the footprint required for full use?

    Arc Euro Trade sell the sx2.7 with 2 bed length options.
    If anyone can answer these questions, can you also let me know which size bed your mill is fitted with please.

    Why don't you just give Arc a call?

    In reality, it'll be bed length + bed travel + a bit room to get your hand on the handle, so either 740mm or 860mm + 500mm gives the minimum room, then add a 100mm or so for getting your hand on the handle at extreme travel.
