    Default Need help figuring out which size ball mill I need.

    Here is a print. I need a ball mill to cut this radius. I cannot seem to figure out the effective cutting diameter for any standard size ball mill. I am going to make some calls tomorrow but I figure I will see what the knowledgeable people here have to say.

    Thanks in advance.

    twice the radius i would think
    the x2 just means both sides have the same radius, otherwise the print would not make sense to me.

    That's the way I read it too.

    BOTOH - don't forget the old machinists adage (back in the day it was on every print worthy of the name ) ;- ''if in doubt-ask.''
