One thing that you may want to consider is if you want CNC capability in the future. Hobby class cnc options are getting cheaper and cheaper. There seems to a lot of support for this for the sherline.

CNC is not necessarily about doing a hundred of an item. I do one offs all the time with my Bridgeport. I'll program things in that I would never do by hand.

I think a mill would be much more useful to a slotcar or R/C hobbiest

Yhanks,
