Rotary Milling Machine
This 3-axis milling machine provides a new level of accuracy for making small parts.
A traditional, 3-axis milling machine can cost several hundred dollars or more. The milling machine you see here uses a rotary tool to power the tool bit. The precision comes from two sliding tables that move the workpiece in the X (left-right) and Y (front-back) directions. A platform moves the tool up or down in the Z direction. This milling machine is a handy tool to have in the workshop and the perfect solution for machining in miniature.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
