And if you don't know how to mount a vise, you're going to have lots of questions.

    Good luck. You're going to need it.

    Hello all, thanks for the advice. Fortunately for me this is easy stuff, for most it's not. It's just a matter of figuring out the small details and learning by asking and trial and error. So far I've been able to purchase proper hardware to clamp down the vise, buy the right retention knobs, wire my own harness from the rs232 db25 port to a rs232 9 pin on the computer, learn the controls and interface of the fadal, and finally started cutting a part. The first part I've cut is out of 304 stainless steel for xometry. I could use some advise on what feeds and speeds work well. I'm not getting enough tool life out of my bit. I'm using a TiAl coated 4 spiral flute 5/16 CR endmill. Cutting at about .0014 per tooth. Step over between 30-40 percent and depth is .125". At 4 IPM. Using plain old water for coolant for now. Tool will break after about 2 hours. Does this look right to you guys or can it be more effective.Attachment 285517Attachment 285516Attachment 285515

    This is probably the most complicated job to do properly. I can’t think of anything that takes more knowledge

    Luck didn't build me my manufacturing business, my attitude did. I wonder how much help you've received in your life, I would laugh at that.

    I've had lots of help. Here on the forum and in real life.

    I've also been humble and appreciative of that help.

    Change all your G1s to G0s, your program will run faster.

    Well 304 doesn't like just plain old water for coolant. You really need to switch to plain old RO water. That should double your tool life Immediately.

    If a used kurt vise exceeds your budget, it's not a business I would be pounding my chest about

    No this guy is a pro. His Chinese vise is way better than your crappy Kurt....

    Hey guy by the way may you should try around 7k rpm that might help. If you machine can do it push it to 10k rpm.

    But you gotta use the G0 zero trick. G1's will keep the feed/tooth too low, don't want to work harden that SS.

    Oh yea that’s true. I forget sometimes but this guy probably already knew that man. This shits easy. Pretty sure he is gonna beat asd9100s numbers on Xometry pretty soon.

    Im very proud of my business that I built from nothing and with no help. You couldn't do the same nor does anyone care about your lack of legacy. oh wait, you can afford a kurt vise, theres your legacy.

    Theres lots of insecure men here that took too much pride in what they can do with a CNC machine that got so offended that i called it easy. Sorry but this work doesnt take a smart person to do, thats why shops hire non educated operators and high schools are teaching teenagers to be machinist as an elective, LOL. Its easy, Im sorry if that hurts your ego.

    Come on boys, If i say its easy, you should have agreed or atleast not attacked me for it. I guess its not for you but it is for this 15 year old girl, she doesnt even have a license to drive.

    Bob, its no longer a good rebuttal to spell check someone on the internet. That was cool 10 years ago.

    You need lots of luck and lots of help. You think a mediocre skill takes smarts and talents. Youre offended by someone claiming mediocrity is easy. Youve been conditioned to be weak. Thats the truth.

    So let me guess whipping something like this would be a cake walk for a guy like yourself
