Thread: advice on purchasing a small mill
13/09/2010 15:10:05
Hi James,
Forget about cu.ins/minute, that's for production work in factories.The machine you need for small models is one that is easy to use for the work you expect to do. I have a mini mill from Warco which does most of my work .I have fitted a cheap digital readout to it and am therefore not worried about things like screw accuracy for measuring out  hole pitches  and distances.The right machine for you is one that will cover the area you need to machine and should have a dovetail slide on the vertical axis.I have access to a heavier machine at my local club.
                                  Regards ,
