    Not to be rude, but you're taking an economy class insert and putting it in an extremely economy class holder, both of which are designed for shoulder milling, and then wondering why your face finish...

    I broke one once, first time I ever used one. It fell apart at the brazed join. A Sandvik one, 10mm ball nose, long shank. I think I let the edges get too dull and it overloaded the shank.

    Never...

    I have a couple like that by Tungaloy and Sandvik.

    The utility of them lies in the shanks rather than the cutter itself.

    Get that on the end of a 7-10xD solid carbide shank and it's a real...

    I am not familiar with Siemens controls, but was following this thread sorta/kinda out of curiosity.

    I did some googling, and it seems like Regie.exe is some sort of process launcher/monitor for...

    As with most cam software, the only source of free tutorials is whatever other users, and occasionally distributers, have decided to put up on youtube.

    I got a few hits for esprit tutorials on...

    D style is by far the best, as evidenced by the fact that every tooling vendor has jumped on that bandwagon wholesale since sandvik first brought it out about 15 years ago. It's extremely secure.
  9. Electrolytic weld cleaner, use on aluminium?

    I've only ever used these machines on stainless, and that is how they are marketed.

    Some of them mention in passing about other metals, but solid info on that is very thin on the ground.

    Any of...

    It's also not unheard of for the screw to just fail, especially if they are not torqued (without the correct torque driver, practically everyone overtightens insert screws)

    That looks like a nice feature for sure.

    The reason I say the Wera hex plus are the best is that they have a sort of concave flat profile rather than a plain hex, and they are far less prone to...

    I am a big fan of Wera tools. Their "hex plus" allen keys are the best you can buy. Screwdrivers are great too.

    I have a 3/8" socket set from their Zyklop range, and it's very nice, great satin...

    That's the one I was thinking of too, and it's made by Horn.

    It's a semi-special from them, as in they have a template tool with a family part number, but is still made to order / spec.

    Tesa are my favourite, been using them for years. They just feel better than the Mits in use, slide is smoother, body is a more comfortable shape.

    I have seen heads like that made by Horn, but I suspect they were specials.

    Never seen a planetary/roller screw drive in a machine tool, but it's not beyond the realms of possibility.

    I think it's much more likely that OP is confusing ballscrews with roller guides.

    Having had many years of experience with capto, I can tell you that a capto connection is about as close to a solid piece of metal as you can get, at least in a static tool. I have some extremely...

    So I checked just now, and I can confirm that the coolant is routed through bar on the 50x60.

    There are other considerations besides the coolant routing that you should factor into your decision....

    I use these a lot.

    First off, these are D'Andrea heads licensed by Iscar rather than vice versa, accordingly you can find out a whole lot more about the system by looking in D'Andrea's catalogue...

    Venturi vacuum generator is what I have too.

    Creates a pretty effective vacuum but doesn't have the capacity to tolerate any leakage, so a very good seal is important. Sometimes you need to help...

    That holder looks a whole lot like a much-bigger-than-the-tool hydraulic.

    As in, I have a bunch of bigger hydraulics in the 20-32mm range on 40 taper that look just like that.

    So if I had to...

    In the meantime, could you get by with a axially compensating collet to get the next job out the door?
