PCB milling on an XXL?

I bought my XXL thinking I was going to primarily work on larger wood projects. I find now that I have a need to produce custom printed circuit boards. I know folks are using the Nomad for this, but has anyone had success with an XXL? I’ll be doing several prototyping runs in batches of 1-5 small boards, with small SMD components. Before I buy the bits and other material I’m just wondering if anyone else has had success etching tiny traces on an SO3 (preferably XXL).

I dunno about tiny (arguably that’s what the Nomad is for), but folks have done pretty well — should be some useful links at: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/CAM#PCB

I’ve done it, “tiny” is all in the eye of the beholder. .020" traces were no problem for me, could have done quite a smaller, but it was what I needed.
