I purchased this for my drill press to have a larger slider. Some easy assembly and clean up. It works quite well and I'm very satisfied with it.
I have used this several times now for different projects, both wood and metal and find the product solid and very workable. it is not nearly as accurate as the x-y table on my mini-mill, but on the floor mounted drill press i have a nearly infinite z-axis which i needed for larger pieces unsuitable for a mini-mill.
modified existing table system on my mini mill. This made the job much easier and made for a good mod.
This mini mill table has been excellent for me! I have owned it for about a month and have made quite a few reasonably precise parts from it. Tightening the gibs properly and proper torque on the x and y shaft nuts is an important part of making this work well. This table has much more travel then other comperable priced tables also. I have recommended this to many people as it is well worth the $150.
Received my table about 1 week ago. Extremely happy with it. Does everything I need it to. Perfect item if you don't have the funds to shell out on a mill, even though I wish I did. Would highly recommend investing in one for this price. Makes a drill press so much more accurate and easy to use.
I should have paid more attention to online reviews of this Table that is manufactured in China. If you already have a Milling machine, then getting this product ready for use wouldn't be as much trouble. It is not a very well machined tool, even for a $150 product. The T-slots on my product were inconsistently cut (on both slots and even end-to-end within a slot). My Table (as others have reported) will not accept the recommended 5/8" T-slot Nuts. The slots are milled too narrow, so maybe save yourself some headaches and milling work and purchase the 9/16" T-slot Set. There is no way that someone at the manufacturing plant ever slid a 5/8" T-slot Nut into either of the T-slot channels on my Table. That is unacceptable to me and should be a basic check that should be done.
The Leadscrew Support Blocks (on the lateral axis) are cut too wide and actually overlap the inside edges of the T-slots. So the Support Blocks on my Table also would need to be milled flush to allow any T-slot nut to be inserted.
The entire table is very loaded with oil and grit, so plan on dismantling the entire thing to give it a proper cleaning before use. If you are looking for a table with smooth Ways, this Table was not milled to that level of quality. The Ways are semi-smooth to rough and again there is no consistency in the machining from one end of a Way to the other.
If I were Grizzly, I'd drive much better quality from the plant in China. If they really do use ISO 9001 practices, it is time to enforce it with the lack of quality on these Tables. From my perspective, the hours that I have spent and will spend to get this Table into operation far exceed anything that would be considered "reasonable". I would have been willing to pay more for this product to get better quality that what is currently being offered.
I do give very positive words to Grizzly Support for their understanding and positive attitude when I called them to report these issues. They do admit that at this price-point, you can expect to see what I've seen with my Table. So, I'd say only buy it if you are willing to accept all the corrective work that will likely accompany the purchase.
I hope that Grizzly will post this review because what I'm sharing is true of my purchase and not at all inflated. If you take the time to read reviews of this product online (Amazon and other places), you will see very similar comments.
The slide table has a little more play in it than I expected, but it is more than adequate for my intended use which is hole drilling with my G7948 drill press. I use my milling machine for mill work, but I suppose that someone could use it for non-precision very light milling.
It's not as precision an XY cross slide you'd use on a mill, but is great for most of the work I do on the drill press. Actually its a super accessory for my drill press when drilling multiple holes in a line up or bolt pattern, saves a lot of raw by hand set up time on work with multiple holes to be drilled.
two comments: web at time of writing suggests G1076 clamping kit. first, the t nuts in G1076 are (.989) wider than the G8750 table slots (.983), do not fit. Called tech support and they are sending me 9/16" t nuts since I do not have an end mill to grind them down. second, watch the keys. There are two keys in inserted on the x-axis and one on the y-axis shaft. When unpacking my y-axis key fell out. Found it, but just a heads up on the keys.
