    I don’t have a problem with any of you promoting, supporting, endorsing or being affiliated with machines and/or companies. The point is to help others and give advice; you do not need to be neutral at all.

    If people want to "plug" related products that’s fine to, as long as it’s done tastefully and what comes of the "plug" is a decent discussion.

    I can’t see that Dave received any abuse; I can see that Kip gave his opinion and also his recommendation of an alternative machine. You then continued to support Dave with regards to the sieg machine John. Great job you are doing please continue, if you get some unintentional additional business from it that is Great and not a problem.

    Although this post isn't probably relevant anymore i've just purchased a Sieg KX3 and I am really happy with it for a small mill. I purchased it second hand off ebay but it was like new. All I will say there was about 0.07mm backlash in each of the screws consecutively and the chap who had it previously hadn't compensated for that in Mach 3 and he was complaining about the finish on his parts.Click image for larger version.

ID:	22764 This was only part of the problem the machine is heavy for a small machine but if you see on the photo the guy had it on the shittiest stand imaginable which was a self build and was causing the majority of his machining issues as literally it would move everytime the machine made a cut. I am currently in the process of building a high quality enclosure and changing the standard R8 to a TTS/ Tormach Tooling System holder with Pneumatic drawbar. I will do a seperate post on that and please check out my Youtube vids.
