Great addition to my shop 03/07/2019 3:28:27 AM

First machine damaged in shipment so Grizzly shipped replacement. Great customer service. Machine performs as expected, precise, runs smoothly. Anyone looking for a new machine of this capability should seriously consider this machine.

Have been using it for a few weeks and has been flawless. Would recommend this unit. Price and features were unmatched by anyone. THX

Amazing mill at agreat price. 10/31/2018 6:39:33 PM

I initially had some serious quality problems with my mill. I think it was kind of a fluke, but the down-feed transmission was seriously flawed in its manufacture and assembly, causing some damage to the internal parts when I first plugged the mill in and attempted to give the power down-feed feature a dry run, which rendered my brand-new mill completely inoperable. It took almost two months of working with the Grizzly tech support people to get the issues resolved. But resolve them they did! The Grizzly customer service and tech support staff are very good at what they do, and they eventually got me the parts I needed to get the mill up and running.

And run it does! Every day. This mill is stable and heavy and very precise in its movements. The 3-horsepower motor has more than enough grunt to do any job you'd do on a mill like this. And it's single phase, which I think is a real advantage. The 49" table is only 7" longer than a standard 42" table, but it seems like so much more than that. I have enough room to set up other fixtures like a rotary table or dividing head without having to remove my vise. Power feed on the table works perfectly and can be dialed down to almost a standstill with plenty of torque, if you have need of a feed rate that slow. The design, being a clone of a Bridgeport J-head, is solid and enduring and well developed, so long as they're assembled correctly. All of the advantages of that design apply equally to this machine.

The DRO is almost a mandatory accessory, in my opinion. This one is the same model as the one on my lathe, and is very accurate and repeatable. I have learned to trust it far more than the handwheel graduations. I adjusted the precision down from millionths(!) to show only ten-thousandths. Works very good, but Grizzly needs to get someone who speaks English to re-write a true English version of the manual. Seems like it's been written in English by a Chinese editor who doesn't speak English very well.

My mill is actually very well finished, with decent paint and chrome knobs, handwheels and levers. A nice touch. Even with the initial trouble, I consider this a very good buy and an asset to my little shop.

Single phase mill 10/02/2018 5:18:14 PM

I like this mill but.... it has a single phase induction motor so... the motor starts instantly resulting in the belt screeching. Noting I do will stop the screeching so I just live with it. The DRO works well but it is NOT user friendly and the Chinese instructions are difficult to understand.

So far I am very pleased 09/26/2018 1:47:19 PM

This has only been set up and on line for a few weeks but for the work I have done so far it has performed great. The machine exceeds my expectations. I have experienced no issues whatsoever. I also believe the instructions for the mill are excellent. The DRO manual is very difficult to understand and needs an English speakers re-write.

Great mill at an awesome price 01/26/2017 1:03:45 AM

I received mine only 5 days after I ordered it. It was packed very well and looked to be in excellent shape. I had to leave it for the time being because we were traveling for a couple weeks. I couldn't wait to get it set up and working.
So I have been running now for a couple months. I am very pleased with this mill. It is a very good machine at a super price. I have already completed several projects and have several more on the burner. If your looking at used bridgeport mills, I would suggest you consider a grizzly mill instead. For the same money you get a new in the crate, very good quality mill you don't have to fix before you can use it.

Great Buy 01/26/2017 12:43:26 AM

I have used many vertical mills in my day, and this is a well built machine. Buy one, you will love it! DRO is a challenge, someone needs to re-write the manual in English!

The first Grizzly buy I did right. Kick-ass mill. 07/14/2016 3:01:23 AM

I pre-ordered this mill on the intro price offer. It was going to be here summer '15. It got here October '15. I mounted it on a 5/8" steel plate with S.A.E. jack screw bolts in the corners. It passed every time when checked for level with a machinists level. The DRO is great. It really reduces setup time and speeds up in-tolerance one-offs quite a bit. Every thing is so tight that after six months of use all the levers are just now getting so that gear changes are done with confidence. The rotary table I bought elsewhere is a 12". I was going to buy a much smaller machine but the price on this was an offer I just couldn't refuse. With a 49" table I can set up both the 6" mill vise AND the 12" rotary table and just run the table over for work station #2. I'll be cutting out a ceiling joist so that the motor doesn't hit it but I'm putting in a 4" I-beam that will also allow the trolley to roll over to the chuck of my Grizzly G4003G lathe. It took longer to get it out of the crate than it did to fire it up and start doing quality work. The turret allows me to swing the entire power head over my welding table for really weird stuff. I'll be boring a furnace lid (fire brick) using an 8" diamond core drill that way soon. Grizzly has seen a steady stream of tooling orders while I tool up to take full advantage of this mill.

A new milling machine for less than many used machines would cost 01/18/2016 11:32:11 PM

I have owned this machine for a few months now and I can highly recommend it in every way. It is an excellent machine despite the incredibly low price. I have done an in depth review of this machine and the process of one person moving it by themselves. You can see this review on youtube by searching "Crusty Old Machinist". This machine gives you much more than your money's worth and in many cases costs less than a used machine that is needing a lot of work to be right.Consider when looking at used machines that this mill has NONE of the problems a used machine has AND it includes a DRO that works correctly as well as a power feed on X. An outstanding value. If you are on the fence, take the plunge. Watch my video review and buy this machine, you will be very happy.
