    Default Opinions on the Sharp Vertical Mill

    Won't be cnc for awhile, but I'm looking at purchasing a new Sharp LMV-50-K (9x50 dovetail ways) or TMV-K (10x50 Box ways) vertical mill for use in a non production environment.
    The TMV-K is only about $1,500 ore and has box ways and automatic drawbar.

    I don't need the additional travel at this time but for the difference in price I wouldn't hesitate the larger machine.
    Do the box ways bring more benefit as well?

    We bought a couple new sharp knee mills with the VFD spindles. Pretty nice machines really.

    Just a follow up.
    After owning the Sharp TMV-K for about 3-1/2 years I can say I'm still very pleased. I'm pretty picky and I really hadn't found anything to complain about.
    The machine is pretty tall but I work off a duck board so it's not to bad.
