[* black] Un-box your Milling Head and attach your preferred milling bit.
[* icon_note] The Milling Head accepts a 1/4" diameter shaft milling bit secured in a collet. You can use any bit with a 1/4" shaft diameter, or you can use a 1/4" collet reducer for bits with smaller shaft diameters.
[* icon_note] We recommend using a carbide two-flute endmill, which works well on many different materials.
[* black] Once you've installed your bit, set aside the Milling Head for later use. Don't insert the Milling Head into BoXZY just yet.
[* black] Remove the Leveling Platform, so that you can only see the Milling Platform.
