Milling machine mods and milling tools projects

For long time all the milling work was made on the mini-lathe, so the first milling tools were made for it.
Never found a way to take a look at a Weiss, Sieg or Realbull mini-mill. But unexpectedly was lucky to get a Roland that was about to go to the scrapyard. So that's the small mill to start with.
