Excel square keyseat calculator
I had been looking for an accurate and quick way to calculate for square keyseat cutting and found a link to an online calculator. That was nice if you have internet service at all times. I really wanted to find an Excel file but didn't, so I made my own. It is attached to this thread. Notice there is also a sheet for X and Y axis moves that calculates for your manual programming. Sometimes this is just faster than using CAM software and the human/calculator method, both of which I do.
It is made with Excel 2003 and the 27th Machinery Handbook as a reference. I hope it isn't too confusing for you. It is protected for the sake of eliminating mistakes, but there is no password on the protection if you want to make some changes for yourself.
