I have a mill. I don’t use it much. For metalworking,
a mill gets sharp metal shavings all over it and cutting
oil too. This stuff can get on your wood parts which
is not always a good thing.

A mill table doesn’t tilt either and speed adjustments
may be more of a hassle than on a drill press.

On the plus side, a mill can mortise and do other
joinery. If you do metalwork or want to fool around
with making contraptions a mill is a cool thing to have.
