The LittleMachineShop.com HiTorque Bench Mill 5500 is a step up in size, rigidity, and power compared to a mini mill. This benchtop mill for sale provides a larger table, more travel, and more horsepower.
A 750 watt (1 hp) brushless DC motor provides abundant spindle power and tremendous low-end torque. The motor has a forward and reverse mode on the power panel.
The 23.4" x 5.5" (595 mm x 140 mm) table provides a large work area.
The HiTorque Bench Mill incorporates a true quill and drill press-style handles for easy drilling. A button on the end of each handle reverses the spindle to make tapping easy.
The control panel includes a digital spindle speed display.
