    You are working on the conversion? Nice.

    I've taken everything on board and will be going for the mill. I'll either wait for the conversion to be ready, or if that's going to be ages I'll convert later. 4 axis can wait 6 months. In the meantime I'll be researching how to hold pieces for flipping and milling the reverse side.

    , the pin method is quite the common choice, have a look on YouTube as some of it will be software related so you'll learn a bit there too.
