Exactly, you don't need a milling machine for this.
The table of the large pillar drill I've used, has limited x,y movement,
way too little to go from end tot end on the toroid.
I made a little platform where the toroid's center plate would rest on and
needed to turn it by hand, while the mill remained in a fixed position.
