      I just thought if we had more info we might be able to generate other, and less expensive, options.

      You have a good day too.

      Have you told us what diameter hole you need to bore? That might make a difference. Also, how deep?

      I hope you can put it to work to earn its keep. That is a lot of cash if you only use it to face off the odd hole.

      Hi, All,

      Several people have
      recommended that I buy a boring head for my mini-mill. 
      I'm trying to
      visualize how I would use it, and come up with this
      question, which I'm
      sure you experienced machinists have resolved thousands of

      understand how one would use a boring head in the mill if
      making a through-hole in a something. 
      But what I don’t understand is how you would make a
      blind hole, or a
      hole with a lip at the bottom?  If you
      did this on the lathe, you would, as a last step, “face”
      the bottom of the hole
      or lip to make it flat.  But that
      seem possible with a boring head.


      could imagine doing this with a rotary table, using an end
      mill to machine the flat bottom surface, but only if the
      hole were shallow enough that the end mill could reach


      How is this operation typically
      Thanks,CharlieNJ, USA
