    I too do as Finegrain shows but I typically use a .0675" radius with .01" blend radiuses so I can use an 1/8" end mill. How much clearance with the corner of the part depends on if I am clamping on...

    Here is an article from the BBC that is interesting, probably about the same thing. I do buy a few things from them but try like hell to avoid them.

    I too do mine myself, and traffic does matter. I have noticed the more traffic it has the more orders I get. I do my own SEO as well, which can not be overstated how important that is.

    Yeah, that pre-existing condition will really suck now that they can discriminate for it. I really liked that part of the ACA.

    Do a search on "Bill Clinton's diet", it is very informative. Not...

    I too am very sorry to hear this and hope you do well with it. It sounds like you need to follow the Bill Clinton diet, religiously. Nothing to do with politics and worth looking into. It would be...

    I just got back from our accountant doing our taxes. We barely were qualifying for Obamacare so were paying the high end of the catastrophic plan, but went over so now we have to pay it all back. ...

    I have a 2001 Mycenter 1 and no hydraulics. Are you sure yours has it? Any chance it's low air pressure?

    Oh hell, I just rebuilt my Kitamura 15k BT30 for $4400 including chroming the taper to build it up after too many regrinds. I had Setco do it and have nothing to complain about. 1 year warranty and...

    Spindles are like cats, they have 9 lives. Hard to say just when they run out of them or what crash costs how many lives. I have had some live through bad crashes and had minor crashes cause a...

    Heat gun?

    And I need more characters.

    Typically more rake and relief, but what really matters is less cutting force. A corncob mill is free-er cutting than a finish mill, of the same geometry. An endmill for aluminum is free-er cutting...

    One man shop, 30,000+ parts a year and increasing, manual is getting old. With a 1/8" blade 4%-20% of the stock goes to the cut so a band saw would cut down on waste, if it cuts straight, for me. ...

    I vote it's a defective collet, the slots are too long so they don't give the support needed to connect the segments. Mine don't extend onto the face like the one you show, they end in the 30 degree...
