Thanks very much for taking the time to answer my questions. Having no experience in CNC I would never have considered the issues you have pointed out. I greatly appreciate the time and effort you have taken.

I'm using the following setup to make my own rail switches from scratch and remove other material as needed. Naturally I eventually destroyed the bearing in the rotary tool; replaced with a higher quality bearing of the same size. Someday when I can afford it, I'll get a proper milling machine.

Proxxon 38481 Professional Rotary Tool
cost: $135.00

Proxxon 28606 MICROMOT Drill-Stand
cost: $59.50

Proxxon 24260 Precision Machine Vise for MF 70
cost: $63.29
