Milling machine cheep from Harbor freight Answered
Ever wanted a small milling machine to mill aluminum ? Heres a cheep way to do it. It's not real accurate but it gets the job done. and for under $ 160.00. all the parts come from Harbor Freight (Drill press on sale 70.00) (roto zipp bit 2.99) ( 8 inch crosss vice 39.00) some bolts and thats it ! it's slow so take your time and the vice is a little rought but it gets the job done. Run the drill press at the highest speed on aluminim slower on plastic and use small cuts , don't try to hog out the part it will break the bit. have fun !! There you have it.
