    Thanks. Good to know.

    If you get that, then you'll need to get arbors, slitting saws, milling cutters, etc.. the biggest problem that I've had with the RAA is it moving when your taking a cut but I came up with a simple solution, after mounting the RAA but before clamping I take a 4" Kant Twist clamp and clamp it over the depth stop thing and the nearest big/long head clamp nut and just snug it then indicate the RAA in and use the quill clamp I've never had it move after doing this. The reson for doing this is because the quill can rotate just a little and that's enough to screw up a job.

    Arbor support for right angle milling attachment

    So I have a right angle mill attachment for those occasional odd jobs. I don't have a horizontal mill but I see that a job every now and then I could use one. So my question is would it be worth investing in a support attachment so I can turn my vertical mill into a horizontal one? Do these things work well? are they rigged enough if light cutting is done?
    Something like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/171730073178...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
