      If 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...
