    Milling cutters for milling difficult materials? welded Cast iron, Al Bronze, Repairs ect.

    Get yourself a Ripper Cutter its a roughing tool.That will do the type of thing your talking about.Remember if your machining weld or chilled cast iron,etc you should be on a relatively slow speed.Too fast and you will burn your tool out

    Your post 14 comment about the c/sk on final depth.Think its a bit like a parting tool once the tool is cutting dont stop it go to final depth.As has been suggested a pipe on your handle so you can get a steady feed to depth and WD40 WILL help.This sounds like a light weight machine and if your...

    Counter Sinking Questions

    500revs far too fast.ItS aIways temping to run then too fast.No harm in trying a lower speed say 200 and go from there think on the machine your using slower will be faster.When you get near the depth a squirt of WD40 then go to depth suspect its lack of power.Tool must be sharp even stoning the...

    Want opinions on mounting drill press vise

    Agree knock yourself a sub plate up row 1/2 or 5/8ins tapped holes.Stagger the next row down 1/2-5/8ins drilled reamed holes so the dowel holes will be on next row between the tapped holes.Obviously you dont want them all on same LINE.This will allow you to clamp jobs down and put dowels in...
