    Hello Ed,
    Your question: "How to design a machine tool that will drill and mill".
    I'm sure you have a picture in your mind on what you're looking for, but I think the rest of us may not understand your needs. First! All milling machines can drill and mill, are you thinking single or multiple spindles.
    I think if you want to build your own machine tool, you have to know your needs and the questions you may want to ask yourself are: What kind of materials you plan to machine and what kind of parts you plan to machine, what size of machine, how accurte, manual or cnc operation, production or one off parts.
    I maybe wrong but I have a feeling that you have not built a machine tool in the past, so the thought of buying and building or fabricating your own parts is a daunting task for anyone. Some people will take an existing machine tool and modify them to suit their needs, perhaps this is a cheaper and easier way for you.
