    At the risk of being expelled (quite rightly perhaps!) and suitably shot down in flames, banished, forever tarred and feathered........

    How outlandish and totally unacceptable would it be to convert a pretty chunky CNC Inspection machine into a light weight mill? hi speed spindle and small cutters?

    Thanks for that. The big question is what's hiding behind the bellows and what sort of load is it designed to withstand? Not much I would assume.
