    I guess I'm not surprised either you aren't getting a great finish with that high of feed and that length tool. I do lots of 10-15x D surfacing. I usually use a 1/2 tool and leave 1-5 thou going fast then finish going nice and slow with the finishing tool

    Looking for some direction/ advice...

    Has anyone else on here used Solidworks CAM? I have no idea how good it is or ease of use, I've only used it for modeling and extracting dimensions for some manual jobs

    Looking for some direction/ advice...

    If you will be creating your own models obviously Solidworks is a good place to learn, if you are being sent 3d models, I have gotten the most help from having someone nearby I could ask for help. I know that isn't always an option, but I had the luxury of learning to program on the job. We use...

    OT:- 68,195,851 UK Covid-19 Survivors

    I can't be grateful for the freedoms me and my family enjoy by birthright based upon liberty and anti-coercive sentiment, and at the same time be spiteful when most of them are being challenged by authoritarian rule? Seems more like a regime than an administration at this point

    "Drilled" hole tolerance

    bet the customer wouldn't like their part delivered according to his chart with a 1.511 bore if the print calls out +.0005,-0 on a 1.500

    Haas CNC Reviews

    We also have great service from Productivity here in MN so no issue when there is a problem... Got me wondering if their service is nearly as fast with their Makino or Matsuura machines though

    Facemill for light duty mill - aka 3 hp BP clone

    I ran a lot of 304, 316, 420,440c, and 17-4 on a knee mill at work. I found the best results with either a 2" 3 tooth or 2" 4 tooth Seco face mill. We had a 6" cutter I tried a few times, even in 303 a knee mill doesn't really have the rigidity for that type of milling
