Finish-turned gear shaft laying on the milling machine, being held down only by gravity. Due to extreme overhang, the right end of the shaft will be supported on a roller to take the strain off the knee and table of the milling machine. It is possible for extremely unbalanced pieces such as this shaft to cause a mill to topple over sideways. The depth of cut in this setup will be controlled by adjusting the elevation of the vertical head, not by elevating the knee and table.
