# Alternate Mill Geometry?

*From*: Paul@xxxxxxxxxx*Date*: Thu, 06 Oct 2005 23:06:28 -0700

The traditional Mill structure neeeds 80" of space for 40" of travel.

Are there any commercial machines that keep the work still and move

the spindle?

Do any of them come close to the precision of a traditional mill?

I want a CNC mill to put in my garage, but any traditional mill takes

up a lot of space.
