need, it looks as though I'll have to gamble on ordering something new
over the internet.
At the most extreme, I'll need to be able to drill 1-1/2" holes through
1/4" thick stainless steel, space and weight are a big issue, to the
best of my abilities I've narrowed the choices down to a Grizzly G7943
drill press and a Mini Mill/Drill(if I can find a suitable one).
Since I'll need to make parts of various shapes and sizes I thought
that a mill/drill might be a plausible option. But I've discovered that
there may be books that show how to do milling on a drill press with
the proper jigs and attachments, so I may just stick with that idea.
Is there anyone here that has had a lot of experience with using a
drill press as a milling machine? If so, advice would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
