    I didn't see total thru cut? (total depth). We run 1/8em up to .625 and .75 deep (not in one cut, and not to .0004"), but an 1/8 is pretty stout if you can keep the flutes to bare minimum for the...

    Not really a funny story, but related to your mic joke. I was in an apprenticeship and I had borrowed a 0-1" and laid it on top of a rag when I was done for the moment. Completely spaced it out and...

    4 flute is stronger, but less room for chips. Maybe a 2 flute for better chip evacuation. I don't like 2 flutes, but without flood coolant... maybe will be better?

    or just write a program better suited to vf2 travels?

    not trying to be a smart ass, but it's a simulation for training/learning so...? X "travels" 10" or 40" should not matter for that purpose

    NGC does auto recovery by default, but if it doesn't work it will walk you through step by step, homing the arm, moving the pot up/down etc. Not sure what you mean about testing though.

    R8 is 7/16-20

    What is this "special tool" you speak of?? Last I knew it was called a drift (or drill drift), pretty standard tool in a machine shop.

    They were shiny... = expensive to a pawn shop! LoL... I might do $10-20 each for the set. likely a 1000+ grit paper would fix them up and still be within tenths (providing the rust IS just surface...)

    Yep, oil-lite would be a good choice. If your shaft is a nominal/standard you can buy to size too, no machining required (well maybe cutting to length).

    Are you giving it a tool change position (editing in by hand), or is the vps generating the entire tool change command line? Do you have a toolchanger on this? 4 or 8 position? Couldn't tell you why,...
