Micro Mill

Not only is space for a layout a problem for me but also for a workshop. I had always reckoned on a lathe and milling machine being one of my first self indulgent purchases upon retirement but with very limited space it had to be a mini lathe and micro-mill. The mill I converted to CNC and it has proved to be a most valuable asset in the development of models.

The model I chose was the Proxxon MF70 which at the time was the only mill with the 20,000 rpm maximum spindle speed required for miniature milling cutters.

I use the mill for prototype frets in NS and Brass, fly cranks, chassis blocks in Tufnol and mould patterns in wax and acetal.
