Default Sieg SX4 Vertical Mill

This looks pretty good: http://www.siegind.com/product.php?id=78

I'm wondering how much they will go for in the UK?

Vic.

Take the price they sell for everywhere else in the world, double it, stick another zero at the end and you'll probably won't be too far off

Sadly, you're probably right Jim

Specs wise they seem to be in the same "ball park" as Chester's 626 and Super Lux, ......... probably better than the Super Lux in fact ............ so I would suspect cost will be around 2k (and probably plus a bit) .........

FYO - Because of all the work they've done with the X3 & SX3 mills, when I first saw the descriptions of the X4/SX4, I queried Arceurotrade (Ketan), to see if they planned on testing/marketing the X4. No, he indicated that the machine was larger than they were interested in.

Thanks for that, worth knowing.

On the west side of the pond, the X4 is now available from Mr. Grizz. So it should help you with the price.

Spindle taper MT4 I hope that's a misprint, unless I'm missing something.

In the Machine Data Sheet it says "Spindle Taper....R8"

600 lbs? That's RF-45 territory isn't it?

Just under $3K....hm, that's 3x the price of an X3, which is just under a 400 lb machine. Motorized Z axis nice, probably too heavy to crank by hand. I'd kill for that additional Y travel, but it has less Z travel than an X3. That tilt angle display looks like someone stuck in an off-the-shelf digital angle gauge in there.

I predict we'll see a few Sx3's being modded to add the head lift motor and now I know here my digital protractor is supposed to be stored....LOL. A bit pricey for my pocket.
