    so i dont have a benchtop mill or cnc yet. but i need to mil some alu
    i have some milling bits that fit my trim router and am thinking of using the trim router to mill the alu plate. i think i saw a tread where someone did this ( not 100% sure)
    can this be done with a trim router?

    Don't think so. The forces that are exerted during the milling of metals are surprisingly big. You're most likely to lose control and/or damage the aluminium, the router bits and yourself.
