The mill drill/lathe is a comprimise to save space and in most comprimises there are irritating trade offs. As an experienced woodworker you know that the European all in one woodworking machines are well made and can do nice precision woodwork, however, as a professional woodworker you also know you would be pulling your hair out reconfiguring the machine every time you wanted to do another type of operation. Outside of saving floorspace, there is really no advantage to an all-in-one machine.
