This mill looks like my Grizzley Mini Mill. There were two features I wish I understood better before I bought.
1. The travel per rotation of the dial. Grizzley is odd, .0625 per turn and it is marked .060 + .0025. Others are .050 and metric. I converted mine with a kit from Littlemachineshop.
2. The collet system. Mine is MT3 which is OK but not as common as R-8.

Other than this I'm very happy with the unit.
