[* icon_reminder] When you install your bit, you need to screw it in (as shown in the second image) tight enough that your work material won't pull it out, but not too tight or else it could lead tocause other problems. It takes practice to figure out the right amount of torque.
[* icon_note] The Milling Head accepts 1/4" diameter shafts. Many different sized bits and endmills are available with a 1/4" shaft diameter. You can also use a collet reducer'''[[Item:Collet Reducer|collet reducer]]''', as shown in the third image, for bits with smaller shaft diameters.
