Every Bad Thing I Have Said About Millie; Forget It

Within its limitations on power and size of workpiece, it works well.  This evening I was cutting little parallelograms of acetal on the chop saw, and one came out a bit wrong because my jig for holding the material in place did not quite work.  There was a time I would have thrown it away or sanded it to square, but I would not have tried to cut it square with a bandsaw or chop saw; too dangerous.  I would not have tried to fix it on a manual mill; too slow and repetitive.  But I just change the parameters to my excavate program, put the deformed acetal wi the square side down and run the program to salvage this piece.
