Sieg Super X3 Mill Enthusiasts' Site
Welcome to the SuperX3.com website. This website is an enthusiast's point
of view of the Sieg Industries' Super X3 Mill and X3 Mill.
You may already be familiar with Sieg's line of home-shop bench-top style
machines such as the X1 Micro-Mill, X2 Mini-Mill, X3 Small Mill and now
Super X3 Small Mill with the rotating and tapping head.
THE LAY OF THE LAND
Where does this mill "fit" in the landscape of benchtop-style mills? We'll talk about dovetail column machines here. Dovetails prevent the Z-axis
(up/down) from losing it's reference whereas a round-column type mill
(like your common drill press sitting in your garage) easily loses its
X-Y reference when you move the table up and down (ever notice that when
your drilling a hole and you need to move your workpiece up and down to
accommodate the changing drill bit sizes?).
Onto the "lay of the land": (but first, it needs to be said that
all things being equal, size does matter in machinery - the
heavier the machine, the sturdier it'll be equating to more mass
it can remove.)
As you can see, the X3 fits nicely in between the X2 and RF45 (Rong-Fu is
a quality asian machine manufacturer located in Taiwan and is often cloned
by machine manufacturers located in China). If there is enough space to
run a RF45 or its clone(s), then for a few hundred dollars USD more than
the X3, some
might recommend it. However, for many who find the X2's work envelope just
a bit too small for their kind of work and need a mill that's "just right"
for their workspace, the X3 would certainly make a nice addition to the
