    Just 3 axis? You could, but the table is only 20". You can fit two 6" vises on it. If you wanted more space by building some kind of subplate, you'd need to be very mindful of clearance should the...

    Use negative R. For example, on m8 I'd use R-.115 Z-.165 with a 90° tool.

    Interesting how many people don't realize this "trick" (if you wanna call it that)

    How many times do you see people starting at positive values, 0.100" or .05 or .02 or something. Wait all day...

    Agree with every bit there. I'm using 5th Axis' rocklock riser.

    Interesting idea, Frank. Sounded plausable to me, so I just went and tried this on my UMC. First touching off a 1/32" ball endmill in the center, then on the edge closest to the OTS. Only .0003"...

    I think you might have mis-read what I said, or perhaps it wasn't clear enough. Haas' G94 feedrates with rotary motion are a bandaid, not TCPC. TCPC is fantastic.

    As to the original question - the shortest answer is it really depends on the parts you do.

    There's not one be-all answer. All methods have their place.

    From my view, G94 in multi-axis applications is a band-aid. On Haas, (not sure about fanucland) your programmed feedrate is only accurate at the distances you specify in settings 34 & 79, 4th & 5th...
