    What are some of the things I should keep in mind if comparing these?
    Is one a mill for harder metals and one the CNC for larger projects maybe not metal?

    So the MiniMill is a small (5x5" work area) lead screw driven machine where the OX tends to be a larger belt driven machine.
    The leads and belts have their own advantages and disadvantages but the basics in our system are;
    Belts are faster and can be larger builds but a little less accurate over all
    Lead screws are more percisce, more powerful for material removal but are usually smaller builds.
    Hope this helps
