• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Using a drill press for bushing

    Thank you for the answers I have received so far. Much to think about and contemplate. I would imagine that if I went with a milling machine, the quality of it would matter, same as a drill press, as Elliott mention run off and vibration. May I ask what kind of milling machine you have?

    Using a drill press for bushing

I purchased a make-do KWM machine off of Ebay a few years ago, it was ok but for larger jobs and plates...
