What a milling machine is useful for

In fact, it's a machine that should not be missing from a carpenter's workshop or from the kit of a woodworking construction worker or even a woodworking enthusiast. The milling machine can be used to mill edges, profile edges, make joint profiles, cut out the space for various mortises (such as the space for fitting the butterfly for the butterfly joint), various trenches and grooves are made.

Initially this type of tool was limited in its uses. It was used for cutting countertops, straightening edges and so on. But now the little power tool has really become a force to be reckoned with in most workshops. It is used for a wide variety of tasks including cutting narrow grooves to allow for mortising, making mortise and tenon profiles, edging hardwood planks and many such tasks.
