Smaller knee mill or larger bed mill? The Home Shop

Even on manual mills, a bed mill is no worse to use than a knee mill. At work I use a Kendal&Gent CVM25 pretty regularly. At 10ft high and nearly 8000lbs it's a chunk 'o mill.

The old mill/drill vs small knee mill dilemma! The

It’s basically a toss up between a small knee mill with 8x30 table and an RF45 clone. Both are the same price but the RF45 has more added to it. I will have to add at least the DRO to the knee mill but the power feed doesn’t bother me at this point. Most of my work is small scale and I don’t work on auto stuff.
