    "Swarf will find a way."
    Yes it will.

    I'd been squinting at the layout / floor plans for the VTC 200C going what the hell is that a picture of ???

    Then finally - D'oh one of the side views was rotated CCW 90 degrees...

    vtc200c-side-view.jpg<<< Click to "blow-up".


    At least according to the literally sketchy diagram the table height is or might be 31.5" ?

    That seems to make a lot of sense - (not too low for me at least and I'm 6'1" .)

    So vices and fixtures etc. 4" to 6" off the table to bring to 36" -ish ? (sub plate etc. ).

    110" ish parapet (looks a smidge taller ? IDK ).

    The nomenclature / naming scheme of the VTC series totally baffles me ? Size weight reach etc. almost has no meaning I can discern from a 300C or a 200G or 800 G-30s or VTC-805G etc...

    ____________

    Seems there may be a EZ series mill that is supposed to be coming out that is 60" by 30" (conventional c-frame with stacked X and Y axes with the table / table + saddle).

    Definitely +1 / thumbs up for fixed table travelling column.
