There are many different mini milling machine models out there. From regular types of mini milling machine to specialised cnc mini milling machine models, there is a lot out there to choose from.

What is a mini milling machine?
A mini milling machine is a standard milling machine but a lot smaller. A mini milling machine is small enough to fit onto a desktop and because of this, can be stowed away very easily. It can be used for precision milling and milling of things such as handles and grips.
The down side to mini milling machines is that they cannot mill larger things and they tend to vibrate a lot more than heavier, industrial sized machines. It’s a give and take situation.
