Hi Dan/Nancy

  This is my exact setup & it works well withen limits.   4 flute end
mills work best, and take off very little metal each pass.  It also helps
to be able to lock the spindle  stationary, or remove the rubber o-ring
on the spindle if it has one.  The chuck tends to bounce when the o-ring
is in place.  The first pass is pretty rough, but after a flat is
started, it smooths out.  I found best speed around 200 to 500 R.P.M.
