    I believe there is a cold drawn option that makes it more accurate.
  3. Standard 6061 T6511 ASTM B221 aluminum tube tolerances

    Good afternoon,

    I have been having a difficult time locating the dimensional tolerances of this 2" OD .065 wall aluminum tubing.

    Thank you Tom. I'm tooling up a new machine and they have them listed separately.

    The whistle notch shows less sizes and much more expensive but both look to hold end mills with a set screw.

    Thank you John.

    The machine is a TRAK RX5.. 5HP bed mill. I think the power is easily there.

    Radius is 1" and 1.5" so not that tight.

    Accuracy isn't a big issue. They get welded onto the...

    I'm thinking a fixture mounted in the vise. A hole in it that you slide the rod into. Mill a contour tangent to the hole and around at a radius.
    The tool in the spindle would be a 1" steel rod with...

    It's all about load. If the machine can hog steel with a 3/4" end mill, I'm not so sure 1/4" aluminum rod is more of a load.
  11. Bending 1/4" soft aluminum rod with a CNC mill

    We just purchased a new CNC milling machine.

    I have a particular job where we hand bend 1/4" rod into a "U" shape

    I'm thinking I could make a fixture and a roller tool to put in the spindle to...

    So no response to my original question? Why does McMaster carr and MSC skip 10 gauge?

    I don't quote jobs. I don't have to. I just make parts and fix parts for a small company. We aren't a job shop.

    I already did the googling. I was wondering why McMaster and MSC skip over that...

    That was a joke. I have those dies. They don't work. Do a google on thread dies. Almost always says for cleaning up threads. Yes they work on mild steel and aluminum but SS is another game
