Vertical boring mills are mainly used for turning, facing or boring large cylindrical workpieces and work much like a horizontal lathe stood on one end. Two vertical uprights are mounted to the back of the diameter of the table, which bolsters a cross rail. The cross rail can be maneuvered up and down on the support columns in order to accommodate various workpieces.
