The Taig Milling Machine

I use both the manual and CNC versions of the Taig milling machine and feel that they are an excellent option for the shop needing a small milling machine of low cost and high quality. The ER16 spindle allows tooling up to 3/8" to be utilized. Proudly made in the U.S.A.!

They have been shipping the mills very quickly lately, you can always ask me for a current ETA when ordering.
