All Smithy1240 owners and future buyers need to follow the CNC Zone Novakon site.
The Novakon NM200 and Smithy 1240 are to the best of my knowledge the same machine from the same factory. Quality may differ from either Novakon or Smithy machines, as quality control from the factory is dependent upon the buyer.
The only reason I'm posting this is because of my poor quality findings with the Novakon version of the same machine.
LOOK CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BUY!!!!
