    if you want to cut steel then you need something like the mills from
    Tormach Personal CNC (PCNC) | Small CNC Machines
    or build your own like this


    steel is much harder to cut than copper/aluminum, and you need a much heavier and stiffer machine to do it.

    nice ,but that thing is hugeeeeee
    compared to mini mills this can mill titan 5mmper run easy
    i got question
    do you know which ox builds will be easy converted to all metal/steel build vs all alu/wood ?
    and to be possible to add 4th axis thing
    --------- ---(Tailstock CNC Rotary Axis 4th Axis A Axis 4Jaw 100mm Chuck Rotational Axis Table | eBay)
    -----something like this -----
    i look prolly 30 of ox designs but i just don't have clue ,,all these builds look weak vs one on video :)
    i was thinking to use steal square pipes ,with steel plate for rest parts cca 10mm tick
    and to weld table like 6mm bottom plate then 10mm lines that have welded 5mm "tape" over
    to look like t slots
