Description: “Milling Machine”

This tool is a bench top milling machine capable of manually machining small parts out of metals, woods, and plastic. Lacking the rigidity of most larger milling machines, this machine falls somewhere between the Haas CNC mill and the ShopBot desktop router and care should be used when selecting appropriate depth of cut.
