This arrived yesterday a cross slide attachment for my pillar drill. The idea being that I can do some basic milling - the cross slide moves the work forwards & backwards/left & right against the end mill so can be used for cutting grooves, designs etc into stock material (in the photo the stock material is steel). I've bought some end mills to go in the drill & the drill can be set & locked off at a specific depth. I'm pretty sure that everything's Chinese, except for the drill which is made in Leeds, YORKSHIRE (as Sean Bean shouts in a certain tea advert :notworthy:), it's not the best quality but wasn't particularly expensive so I got what I paid for really. 

I've bolted it to a base (mdf) which in turn bolts to the drill table.
