    From Post #1:

    Is there a specialty endmill with blades facing inwards, to create the posts in one cut, and 'fill in' the unmilled surfce with a regular mill? Googling did not produce a result. Or is CNC the only method to achieve this?
    From Post #2:

    Upd: Sherline mill, can get to a Bridgeport.Upd2: Rotary table and regular mill?
    No mention of the sherline or bridgeport being CNC

    Many thanks, 109jb , a boring head is exactly what I need.

    Sorry, folks, that I haven't mentioned that my machine (Sherline) is manual. No CNC.

    I have, indeed, considered pins at first, but posts would have holes drilled and tapped in them. I.e. the posts serve to align and to hold the mating part that would have matching slide-fit holes. Pins would get pulled out otherwise.

    As you can see I replied to the first post, never looked at his second post, anyway a core drill would do what he wants to do, and he could even make the core drill himself, very simple way to do it
