While I would love to have a big old Bridgeport I don't have room for one. So I am on the hunt for a small mill. There is a Barker PM available about 2 1/2 hours away from here and I am interested in it. My research has shown that they work well on aluminum but will they actually make a decent cut in steel. This one has leadscrews on the Y and Z axis and rack for the X axis. It come with no tooling. The asking is under $500. Are Barkers a good choice for a hobbyist or would I be better served to put the dollars toward a Chinese Grizzly?
