That's the same kit I got - lots of good stuff in it ;) The cutting tools will wear out the first time you use them but everything else is good to have. I mounted as much as I could on the wall near the mill so as to keep everything organized.

Looks like the same basic vise I have too. Don't rely on the markers around the vise, mine was off by about 1/2 degree. You might be able to reset the pointer, but I usually mount it then tram it across the X- axis to ensure it is zeroed. I find I usually have to remove the vise "pads" that clamp the pieces to give myself more room when clamping. You'll know what I mean if you have to do it :)

I own Grizzly G8689. It can do drilling, milling and facing with this device - and it handles all of them like a champion. The machine features 1/2″ drilling 1/2″ end mills and 1″ facing mills to take care of these tasks.
The rotational speed of the machine lies between 0 and 2500 rpm.
Here is one article on more info Mini Mill which help me:
