I can mill (with a Roland "Modela" MDX-15). Materials ... so far,
I've tried wood, pertinax, FR4, and aluminium (hard and soft alloys).
MDF, wax, and various plastics should also be fine. I can't do iron,
steel, and other hard metals.

The mill has only 3 axes, so it can't do overhangs, lateral holes,
etc. Backsides are possible, but require manual repositioning, along
with all the problems this brings.
