After struggling along for many years with an increasingly-worn JET mill, in 2003 I finally took the plunge and picked up a brand-new Grizzly G4027 Vertical Mill.
This gave me several features I didn't have previously, including power feed, more horsepower, a wider range of spindle speeds, power downfeed, and more.
Here it is at the shipping depot, as it arrived from Washington. The base pallet is sturdy, but the fork slots don't fit american pallet jacks.
The truckers had to put it on a regular pallet in order to get it loaded without having to use a forklift. I checked it over fairly well,
and saw no obvious damage, no signs of impact, the plastic sheeting was intact, no handles showed any damage.
I was happy.
