To The great people at Bolton Hardware,
I recently purchased a ZX45 Milling Machine from your website. I am very pleased with the purchase and shopping experience with Bolton Hardware. Prior to committing the purchase, I called and spoke with customer service to ensure delivery details and was assured the unit would ship a soon as possible. I received the well crated unit within 48 hours of placing my order! The Bolton ZX45 is a really beefy mill that was well built and setup. Checking squareness I note that the factory tramming held up well indicating the steel was well seasoned before shipping. The night it arrived I was able to complete a fine mini project, a half dozen T nuts. The units TAPS 3/8 real well with its stock accessories however I would invest in a floating head for 1/4 and smaller.
Note I have the steel base bolted to the floor, however with the mill at +700lbs I am somewhat leery in using the cabinet underneath. The base appears it could use some reinforcement. I am thinking about filling the base with concrete or sand to reduce sound and vibration. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. Thanks again. and Kudos to all the folks who arranged this great import OEM relationship. I found your X4 configuration and customer service superior to the competition.
