What is it you are in the process of making? Looks quite interesting, although I do not know what they are. I guess from your post it is just a trial run? Jay

just some scrap i was messing around with noting being made just trying out the mill, up untill i got the mill i have had to mill on my lathe and it was not 100% accurate at all, so i was so thank full i got the milling machine now and i got my collets as well...

this week ill be making my first project on it as i have to finish a trailer i have been working on for my 1/6 scale toyota tundra Radio controled truck...iam amazed how riged this thing is... in the chunk of bronze i was takeing cuts at 3/8 of an inch and it was smooth at 1200 rpm
