Eric said that now he puts SBR20 on Y axis in 3040m machines.
Do you still think that the 75 mm axis will be flexible anyway after this change?
I seriously want to buy one , I only need to decide about this option.
The other option I am thinking of, is the 4th axis but if I leave the Z as it is, the 4th axis becomes useless. Thank you in advance.
I have decided to order a Stepmores SM-4040 http://www.stepmores.com/product-504...64000000.shtml as it looks like it will be better than the ones on eBay. The machine has a sturdy cast aluminium build and has a moving table and square rails However that seemed better for some soft aluminium work. I have asked for the 2.2kw spindle.
All being well when it arrives I will post some pictures and a review.
Hey Darren, thanks for your earlier reply (which I didn't see at the time). I have only bought up to 20kg before, but I just looked at a 100kg shipment and it is indeed easy, eg you can just phone DHL and they'll pick it up at the factory and bring it to your door (via ship).
Did you get your machine?
I'm back in this thread because I'm thinking of getting a 6090.
