Introduction

Chester Cobra Mini Mill

This is a re-branded SIEG X1 micro mill which has a chuck capacity of 10mm with the standard drill-type chuck or takes an unknown taper fitting for a proper milling chuck. It has electronic speed control and 2 gears, dual-speed z-axis controls and a 45 degree tilting column. Induction is not required for using this tool but suitable PPE including safety googles MUST be worn, if you'd like help using it then please contact one of the "Knowledgeable users" listed below for assistance. We do not keep any stock of milling cutters suitable for this machine and you'll have to provide your own, this is because cutters are expensive and easily broken and it wouldn't be fair to others to have to pay for them.
