    If you read thru his posts (between the lines) it seems he is always trying to justify going slower. Whether it is tool length stickout too long, or "sudden tool failure", or bad clamping blah blah....

    If you are looking at cnc, you do in fact *need* a toolchanger. You may not think so now, but there will come a day when your design changes and now you need to mill some features, and add some...

    I suspect I am here for some of the same reasons as Dualkit.

    1) I hate BS'ers and liars
    2) Newbies come here asking for help with something really basic* and then get bent out of shape by post 5...

    Ya, that doesn't sound good at all. $182 per part, including all machining (time, setup, programming), material, purchasing, tools, shipping.... doesn't leave much to put in the wallet unless all the...

    There's the rub, you have a cell waiting to do their work. Most shops have to schedule jobs around other jobs, material ordering, tooling, etc. No way the 'average' shop can do 2-4 day turn-around...

    I don't know, but wouldn't it be easier to modify your special tool with a 'standard' round or square shank and set your insert / tool tip height accordingly by machining the shank where needed?

    I know we are talking a little different things here, but that is only true with a manual machine. On a cnc, you need to know what the tool will do, and then program accordingly. We run .006-.01"end...
