    Wobble broaching isn't an option. "All" I'm doing with the broach is picking out some corners of a pocket. Needs to have .06" internal radii, but it's 2.6" deep. Aluminum, through pocket. EDM is an...

    Ha, I think I was looking at that exact unit on eBay! Grats on the purchase, looks like it will serve you well. I'm several months away from adding another machine, too many irons in the fire

    Nope, they're not. I don't care if I toast the spindle, honestly. Sounds brutal, but there you have it. It's going to be cheaper (by far) than getting a pull-broach machine and having a broach made....

    The broach(es) are about 3/4" in size, used for making .06" rads down the inside corner of a 2.6" deep pocket in aluminum. Repair parts are still available for the VMC-15? The last thing I need is...
  8. CNC mill with mechanical spindle orient?

    Might be in the market for a SMALL mill, but it needs to have mechanical spindle orient, not held by motor and belt. Why, you ask? I need to do a whole lot of in-machine broaching, but I really don't...
