I was comparing several different Grizzly mills and then Grizzly put this one on sale Cyber Monday. So, Grizzly made the decision for me with the price. I had a bench mill/drill and decided to upgrade to a Bridgeport style mill. The transaction went well and the mill got here in a few days. I got the lift gate service and the driver had a difficult time getting it to the back of the trailer and turned on the lift gate, but he was very helpful and rolled it on his pallet jack to exactly where I needed it. BTW, I ordered a G0824 lathe two months before and he was the same driver. Now the mill, it far surpassed all of my expectations! Fit, finish and accuracy. I couldn't be more pleased. After having only ever used a mill/drill I really really like the power down feed. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. And I would recommend Grizzly to anyone. I live in Louisiana and I went to Springfield earlier in the year to look at the lathes to make sure of what I wanted to order. Everyone there was helpful and a delight to interact with, everyone!
