    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.
