    I looked at both and went for the Tormach for a lot of reasons already mentioned, but also, it is in my garage and I didn't want to fuss with 3 phase and the MX-200 looked to be too tall. The Tormach was also cheaper (in my configuration) and easier to setup. But if I was needing more power (and putting this in a 3 phase shop) then I would have given more consideration to the MX-200. And the BT-30 holder, as I have quickly learned. But I would have to see more history. I don't know how many mills in this price range I have looked at over the years that didn't stay in production very long.

    I will be putting one into my garage possibly the 425 but I plan to get the 3 phase with the converter which would open up more machines at auctions instead of saying I wish!
