I've owned one of these for nearly 5 years now. It has done everything I have needed it to do. All it needed was to be wiped clean and plugged in. It works steels, brass/bronze, aluminum, cast iron, plastics, and woods without complaint.
It's a great model engineers mill. I've built a number of running steam engines with it and even done gunsmithing and light industrial repair work with it. In my opinion, it's the best hobbyist mill Grizzly offers.
Fast shipping and well packed. Minor issues were identified on delivery which were handled promptly and professionally by Grizzly customer/tech support. Very pleased with the mill. Good value for the price.
I've had this mill for about 6 months, works well. No issues so far. I love that it comes with a no thrills digital scale on z axis. Would buy it again in a heart beat.
I've had this for about almost 5 years. It has served me well. I burned out the drive motor cutting aluminum with a 3/4 end mill at only 1/4" depth. I suppose it was just time. The replacement motor is larger and barely fits in the upper cover but it's better quality. I bought 2 just in case. It is OK for light milling on aluminum but wouldn't recommend it for steels of any depth. Most of what I do is aluminum.
It doesn't tram at 100% in all directions so precision is an issue. But I don't make parts for NASA so I'm OK with that.
The 704 is legendary with hobby machinists and it deserves every bit of that reputation. I had read a lot of good things online about this mill and when I finally took the plunge and ordered one I was not disappointed. This is a very fine machine, perfect for a garage shop. Try to see one in person if you can before making a decision - it's larger that you might imagine, the pictures on the website don't give a sense of scale.
Hint for people on a budget with no lifting equipment like me - I was able to get it up on the stand by myself by tipping it onto it's back, then attaching the base, then tipping machine and base back up. It's possible to get it up onto stand with just one person this way.
Thanks for a great product Grizzly. Also was very pleased with the FedEx freight (with extra lift gate service) - they gave a phone call 20 minutes out so I could meet them at home, and used the pallet jack to move the pallets where I needed. Delivery was very fast, 3 days.
