    You'll want to test your endmill paths when cutting Al or other gummy/sticky parts with just an air blast. If you get acceptable results (no BUE) then go ahead, otherwise you may need to add a mist...

    Let us know how it works out for you. I still think a sensitive chuck is the way to go if you have one, but if you try the drill press be sure you can keep the wire at least partly in the hole at...

    Piffle. Bridgeports ARE small machines. Anything I can pick up and put in my pocket is small, and a BP qualifies. And I did mention using a sensitive chuck for the actual drive, did you not notice...
