    The mill arrived this afternoon (thanks jarred, 
dante, dylan, curtis, and thanks to John at Highland 
Electronics, who donated the machine. 
    The mill is in the dirty workshop on palettes 
beneath the sub-panel, two pieces and a box of parts. 
    The mill must be mounted on some work surface 
and we must get some cutting oil and most especially 
some clamps to hold down "the work". 

    For those who don't know but care, a mill is 
a cutting machine for sheet metal (mainly, and maybe 
other metal parts, depending on the cutting tools 
and the mill's design). Good machinists use mills 
properly and have all their fingers and thumbs.
