    Ah yes, I recall that thread. It was pretty messed up... Spindle taper/runout was way off. Like, several thousandths.

    The cutters I ordered are straight flute, so hopefully they'll work decent enough.

    This particular feature is just milling a face to an angle. There will be no interior wall, so my thought was to first go around perimeter of face via climb milling, with about 1/3 of cutter width...

    I don't disagree with that, but this is a one-off job, likely won't see carbon fiber again for a long while. The cost associated with replacing coolant, or otherwise draining tank etc, and an...

    The question is vague. Is the ID to be ground? If so, just 1 ID, or both... Can't see tolerances. Personally, I'd vote for expanding mandrel on the smaller ID, a little less in length than that ID,...

    That's silly. No problems with that up here, only a couple times that happened last yr, and they were warranted. Sometimes they'll call me if they can't make it up our hill, i have them leave...

    Easy side work on a manual while the CNC is running (or someone starting out who doesn't have a CNC), out of some extra material from some other previous job. This will be somebody's gravy. By the...

    Not entirely sure that your reference to "power loss contactor" is what you think it is. They're not any more complicated or expensive than your standard contractor, really, but it's much safer....

    +1 on the Helical Solutions endmills. Granted, I don't run thousands of anything, but I think they're great. Prices are very reasonable as well.

    I'll throw my $.02 in here I suppose, I'm no electrician. I've built a 10hp self-starting, 20hp pony start, and 60hp "regular" start RPC. The 20hp is no longer pony start, and is what I'd call a...

    Depending on the radius size, you could do as previously mentioned and slowly make single axis moves to generate the overall radius. I've done this but while on a lathe, to make a couple new crank...
