    Hello aphillpmarcou, sure can. I used a hex 5C collet block to hold the handle in the milling vise.
    The mill was fitted with a rounded end carbide end mill. Since I only have a mini mill,each pass
    with the mill was limited to about .012". After 3 passes the collet block was rotated to the next
    side to be milled. Five rotations and it was done.

    If you have a spin indexer then that could be used as well by rotating the handle 60 degrees after each "side" has been fluted.
    The other option would be a rotary table mounted horizontal on the mill.

    Cheers, JR

    Actually a way to mark projects that doesn't involve branding might be very useful. Generally I think of that as a punch but a "hammer" designed to be struck by another might do the trick.

Think of it as a branding iron that required no heating.

    We don't need to mark logs in our shops but the concept of a "marking hammer" may be applicable to some other problem. Texturing material, as is sometimes done to leather, is a possibility.

    Again, just ideas to help make your time in the shower more productive. :-)
