Default choice Milling Machine- made in China?

Hello! Please tell me which version of milling machines made in China, will be enough to work with steel parts? (Optimum Maschinen, Sieg, Weiss, Yangzhou, Anhui ,...)
p.s.- I heard, the quality of these models are not uniquely?!

What country are you in? The reason I ask this is that american mills have performed well for me and would serve you well if available in your area. I've seen too many poorly made chinese mills/lathes to trust them.

Is this a full size floor standing mill or a benchtop model that your looking for? YCI, which I think is Korean made has a fair reputation. I agree that you should try to find a US made mill. Another option you might want to look into is Grizzly.

I'm from Estonia. Machines approximately 1000Watt- (2000-3000 $) mostly made in China! (I would be happy to use an alternative, but do not see how ....)))))
The question was, on the choice of a benchtop model (acceptable accuracy) to work with carbon steel!

I would suggest that you go with a dovetail column machine, whatever brand you choose. Avoid the round column mill/drills.
