William,
if you go to Youtube and watch modern machines in operation notice that almost every machine made today has sliding doors. This is because they run at faster feeds and speeds than the machines designed in previous years and require a flood of coolant to control the cutting process. Your gunsmith mill will function fine at lower speeds and feeds using cheap motor oil and a paint brush to help the cutting operation.
