    If I could help you I would, but this was a few years ago and I don't work at that shop anymore, so no access to that machine.

    It's 77" left to right, and 86" front to back.

    Tap sharpening?

    We use these 1.150"-32 6 flute taps, they used to get sharpened for us by a company that either doesn't do it anymore or is out of business. Not sure which.
    Either way, I told the boss I'd ask here....

    Went with a tin coated roll tap, 1700 holes in so far it still looks good.
    I did a quick test before I left last night to see if it was getting up to speed. This machine taps at 6k rpm max. 8k is...

    Yeah, form taps are stronger and usually my go-to with 6-32’s. I don’t have to deburr the backs of these things if I can keep the burr down. The backs come out smoother when the thread coming out the...

    This is a good idea, Tomorrow at break time I’ll do the same and see what happens. I’m curious if there will be a difference between say 6k and 8k on this thing.

    I'm in uncharted territory as far as how fast to go. The OSG book says 90 sfm which works out to around 2400 RPM.
    So, I have a few of them I'll just crank it up and see what happens.

    I'll take a video if I can when I get it running and you'll see why reversing the spindle on a machine like this is no big deal.

    The material is 1/8" thick cold rolled. It came on a coil before it was stamped, it's pretty soft.
