Gorton Milling machine

Has anyone used a gorton 8-d machine for milling? these are used for
engraving but I have been told they make a good small mill.

Ive got a 3-z that is a very nice fast plastics and aluminum mill. Pretty darned rigid when the head is locked own, and will turn a cutter Really fast. Pretty accurate as well. A buddy came over earlier today and he used it to cut some copper gaskets for some sand rail project he is puttering with. Put a 1/8" 4 flute TiN endmill in there, ran it up about 8000 rpm and just cut thru it like a hot knife though butter.
I wish I had a manual for mine so I could figure out how to do 1:1 or a bigger work piece from a small pattern when in pantograph mode

I think the U.S. Navy Machinery Repairman 3&2 rate training manual had instructions on operating these. Available online at some Yahoo groups.
