Getting Started with Mini Mill Tooling

Introduction

You have your new mini mill mounted on the bench. You are ready to start cutting metal, but find that you didn't receive any cutting tools with the mini mill. What else do you need to get started?

This document covers mini mills sold by a variety of companies in the US and Canadian market. These mills have tables ranging in size from 15.35" x 3.62" (390 mm x 92 mm) to 18.11" x 4.72" (460 mm x 120 mm).

If you have a similar small mill, you might not need the exact part numbers described in this document, but you will need the same types of tools.

We will discuss what you need for tool holding, cutting tools, work holding, and setup tools. Then we will cover some of the operations you might perform with the mini mill including drilling, milling, surfacing, boring, cutting curves, and indexing.
