    Careful, it's starting to be almost Blasphemy around here. Seymore never had an issue with me talking Haas shit. But Mike74 is likely to stand the course for Haas.

    Something isn't making sense here. A rotary broach isn't pushing material, it's cutting, chipping, or Shaping if you want to call it that. I've done 10's of Thousands of hardware heads, in 17-4, 304,...

    I sympathize with an edge break. But putting a Machined Chamfer on T-10 is ridiculous. Not saying I won't do it, but it's not very profitable. IMO.

    I understand that if you've never run those...

    12/Pi does NOT equal 4.

    If people are going to post mathematical formulas, at least do it accurately. If the student chooses to round the value up, that's on them. Sorry, it's a pet-peeve.

    135° is "flatter" than 118° FYI.

    OTOH, if the masonry drills that people are recommending are the ones I'm picturing, they are Carbide tipped so 60-125 SFM is painfully slow. But it won't hurt the...

    Right.

    Pretty much 1/8-27 isn't "Oilfield" stuff. Not to say it doesn't exist out there, but it's to lubricate the real work.
