    I assumed you had a floating holder by your feedrates. Yes, you can change the RPM in the program.

    Well, you might start by putting F.050 in your G95 lines so your feedrate matches the tap's pitch.

    General practice to start the tapping cycle farther then .020" from the part, so your spindle has...

    My first look I thought is was an ONG keypad. I can make out the softkeys below the display.

    I zoomed the pic and see it's not a Fanuc ONG though, not sure what it is. Maybe an old Anilam or...

    That's an old Fanuc 6M? I don't know what the other monitor is for.

    edit: closer look, appears to have softkeys, so may be 10 or 11M.

    I like that the Nikcole system has 2 cutting edges per insert. Also they groove deeper than the others, so you can use them to part off smaller diameters.

    I was running TNMG432's, they all had a hole. I normally roughed at .012-.014 IPR, that's where I ran out of horsepower. If I dropped my DOC down to .200, I could bump up to .016/rev.

    I don't know why that would be. I routinely ran .250-.300 DOC with 1/2 IC inserts.

    Guys, you're making it harder than it is. It's a casting- it doesn't get machined all the way out.

    Only the red areas highlighted in the OP get machined. Bores and holes, don't overthink it.
