    I built my CNC mill about 6 years ago and I have just about 2000 hrs of run time on it. Built in shop vac, full enclosure and a rug on the floor so I am constantly cleaning. I don’t really have tools I don’t use. I had a bunch of machinist tools that were specialized and I had been storing them for 20 years so I passed them along on Ebay.
