    feed rates of various materals
    what materals can this handle metal,plastics ect.
    a link to or information on where I can find any and all information I can get my hands on and where to buy tooling needed.

    is this mill able to handle milling a 1911 80% frame?

    I like fiddling around with benchtop mills alot, could you post a link to pic or website so I can get an idea of which machine you are reffering to? Alot of companies just rebadge imports, if its one I recognize I will def give my opinion.
    The little sieg X2 that harbour frieght sells in store for about $400 is a great little benchtop machine. Not to plug my hobby business but you can see a link to the x2 retrofitted to cnc here.
