Another not-a-desperate-feature-need-but-might-be-useful thought:
I was about to buy a drill press when I realized wait, I have a crazy precise milling machine at home that is more than capable of drilling a hole, and a precise one to boot.
Is there a mode where you can move the cutter around manually while the spindle is running? Eg stick a thing in the vise, move X and Y to where you want them, close lid(so that in the EU, the device won’t eat your arm like so: Overriding door open sensor ), set spindle running and then control z manually?
Obviously drill presses are cheap and not a big deal in a cost sense–in my case it’s a space issue. Can’t cram all the tools I want into my workspace, so whatever can do double duty is a plus.
