I use my milling attachment frequently, not only for milling. I am making an indexing tool which I can attach to the vertical milling attachment to cut gears using a gear cutter or fly cutter in the lathe spindle.

The compound slide is very usefull for tapers but the way it is fixed to the cross slide is not very rigid. I made some clamps to fix it to the cross slide, otherwise it will (slightly) move, which makes it difficult to get a good result.
