What are the uses of milling machine?
I am a bit confused or rather misinformed as to what are the uses or utilization of milling machine, I read a lot about them but I could not find exact answer to few questions, I do a lot of fabrications and it looks like a milling setup could help.
Could a milling machine be used to create parts like radio bezel?
Is there a way to use it to say create "thread" on a metal or plastic cylinder (like creating a bolt of specific thread), could it also be used to create the nut that goes with it.
What is the recommended price range/brand name for an entry level setup but one that could be eventually expanded if proven useful (I am not looking for a dead-end setup)?
Also, I understand form posts by Giuliano that some sort of CNC interface is available? is it too expensive, where do I get the software from if interested.
Too many questions, sorry, but I could not find any where the info I need.
Thanks in advance.
