So I have been shopping around for a few months, reading on other forums, here and there about the small hobby mills (mini mills) that are available out there. I just cant decide, so I'm asking for advice. I don't want to spend more than 1k, space and weight are an issue a bench top unit is ideal. Also power is a factor 220 is available but 110 is more practical for me. I have looked at little machine shop and grizzly as they both fit into my price/size range. Any other suggestions are welcome first hand experience is great. I intend to use it for small work on 1911 pistol frames and slides etc.
