    Could be more than blance issues too. Are you using high end controlled radius ball end mills?

    If memory serves, it is real shit!

    OP, isn't it the same (maybe a trade name?) as finkel (spelling?)

    Not going to happen, sorry. I have no problem with Accupro, we use them everyday... on aluminum. At the very least you are going to need a better endmill, like a Garr, MA Ford or something. You could...

    I think the corner radius is a HUGE factor... I remember running some MA Ford cutters in hard steel (A2 56-58ish) that ran forever! They were *some* coating with a .062r I think...

    Please don't do that, or at least don't word it that way. I have been machining for going on 25 years now, 10+ in manual, and the last of it with 99% Fanuc controls. It may be obvious to 'you...

    I'm with Bob on this. If it is as bad as you say, I would remove the wheel, employ whatever you feel is fitting to remove any excess alum (sharp pick, pointy needle nose pliers, etc) , then dress it...

    If you have organic shapes like your pictures, you might even need a cmm with a scanning (?) head, which will raise the price even more. Curious as why you think you need a cmm AND a vision system...

    Is this a single op part (sorry if I missed that)? If not, I would HIGHLY recommend doing 1st op in one vise and 2nd op in vise 2 and skip the fixturing all together. Nothing worse than handling...

    Kind of hard to do out of state. I tried that, had one (out of only a few times I will admit) really bad experience. I probably spent a month talking with and emailing one shop out of state. Guy...

    I'll post more when I get home. I moved out of state (twice actually, both paid by the same place) and the entire process can be quite time consuming.

    Does a 'regular' lathe use the different tool offsets like 1a-b-c-d etc? If so it would be a good idea to cover that IMO. Going from fanuc (d1 or t101) to that style is confusing.
