    I only just managed to complete the required building work and insulation prior to it's arrival, now I just have to get the cable trays in and the workshop wiring upgraded to and then I can power it up :D

    George of Emvio Engineering dealt with absolutely everything up to the delivery to my chosen location in the UK, I can't recommend him highly enough, from my point of view it was a very smooth, hassle free and worry free process.
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    You won't miss that 4th axis, will you? :-)

    PS. it doesn't happen to take 30/60degree BT30 pull studs does it?
    I may know some idiot who just ordered 20 of them without checking they were the correct ones for their own machine

    Hmm, I kinda might, especially as it's permanently wired, I think I'd spot the ragged end of the cables! ;-)
    The plan is to hang it from a hoist above the machine whilst machining arrays of parts when it's not in use.

    Sadly not, it's the 45 degree.

    I wouldn't be that crude, I'd tape the wires up for you. :-)

    It does look like a good machine, and probably about the ideal size I'd like for some light production work, but my Triac ticks the boxes I need for now.
    If I'm ever down your way, I might have to visit and see how it is in the flesh.

    I did think about making the 4th detachable but the hoist is simpler and relatively risk free.
    You're most welcome to call in for a tour if you're ever passing.
    These are some pics George shared of the X7 castings at the factory -

    Me neither, but it's been agreed that I'm tiling the shower and fitting a new enclosure this weekend :D
