    They make slant bed lathes, why not slant bed mills?

      Well for one thing, you cant easily level work. , not that I use a level a lot more a DTI guy.
      A slant bed lathe makes more sense to me than a slant bed mill..

        Why would you use a level on a mill? Tramming would be a bit more meaningful.

          Try setting up an exhaust manifold off a V8 on a mill, with a tram then get back to us..

            A level won't help you there. I'd use a dti after I trammed the mill

              I find it VERY effective for my latest efforts, milling styrene. My Taig spindle had a convenient slot to mount a regulator, which has a shut off above and locline below.

                How about two spindles, one on each side of the work? That way you could mill both sides of an object without any difficulty.
