Although crude, these machines
assisted man in maintaining accuracy and uniformity while duplicating parts
that could not be manufactured with the use of a file.
Development and improvements of the milling machine and components
continued, which resulted in the manufacturing of heavier arbors and high

Variations of milling machines were also developed to perform special
During this era, computerized machines have been
developed to alleviate errors and provide better quality in the finished
