- May 1, 2004If you want to do any serious milling this is not a good machine to
buy, as it is essentially a drill press with and XY table--in fact
the head assembly is identical to that of many Asian drill presses
sold by HF, Grizzly, Homier, and others.
I think you'll find that using a 1/4" end mill, in mild steel, will
be the machines real upper limit; and that a 3/4" face mill will
shake this puppy's tail...
