    Which brother models should I be watching for? There's a local one for 4k but I believe its the type that only does conversational.

    TC-S2A, S2A-O, S2B, S2B-O, S2C, S2C-O, S2D, S2D-O. SPEEDIO S500 or S700. Starting with year 2000 and newer. The -O earlier models have the larger X axis travel like a new S700. These machines are all G code controls with good parts and service availability. Happy hunting.

    A Kitamura Mycenter Zero is less than 7 feet tall without removing anything. They are a BT30 holder machine and not very rigid.

    They have the yasnac control right? I'm a bit hesitant to buy anything with that

    Me too on Yasnac, I had one, it sucked. The Kitamura Mycenter Zeros came with both Yasnac and Fanucs, you will always find the Fanuc ones pricier and that is for a reason. Back a dozen years ago the used Mycenter Zeros were an average of $5k more for the Fanucs.

    There is a pretty nice looking one on ebay with new parts. For 7g

    13" x sounds awful small but maybe a contender

    It is yasnac

    I see a couple Fanuc ones for that price. The Yasnac MX3 I had was an obvious lemon. When I finally got tired of the money pit when the power supply blew up I parted the electronics out and scrapped the carcass. I listed all the electronic items singularly on E-bay. They were snatched up pretty quick and I ended up getting $4k for pieces of a non running machine that would have been worth $1k sitting where I am at whole.

    I think you are going to ge removing parts to get any decent mill into that opening. I had to disassemble the head of my bridgeport boss8 knee mill to get it under my 7' garage door

    No. I had it on a garage at first. And it fit under the 7ft. Door. It is taller with the headstock raised all the way though.

    I had it running on single phase for a few years but had it on 3 phase since then.

    This was my first CNC mill. Thankfully the tech support for milltronics is awesome. They helped me through some problems when I got it as well as replacing the ball screws and a control upgrade.

    The only reason I seem selling is that it does not have a chip conveyor and I have gotten into production work where I am running 10-14 hrs a day cutting time and that is alot of chips to clean out every few hours.

    Anyone familiar with southwestern lpm

    They are pushing my budget for mach without tooling, but seems like a nice modern machine and control. Size is about perfect for the garage.

    I'll be having a year 2003 Fadal 3020 with Siemens 840D control for sale in Los Angeles soon. Has 15K spindle.
    Right now it has a noisy z axis ballscrew which will need to be replaced eventually.
    But it needs at least 7ft 4inches vertical.

    That's intriguing even though awful far away. Shoot me an email.

    My Brother Speedio fit under a 7ft doorway (exactly 84"), Yamazen did a great job of removing portions of the top of the machine to get it through the doorway and then re-install. This was more problematic than you might imagine because the floor was canted so machine entered at an angle...a flat roadway would be easier. See photo:
