    Hi Dave:
    That's interesting; the catalog price in the USA from KBC is $569.29 USD for the chuck and $334.35 USD for the D1-4 backplate you bought.

    Hi I

    Hi I<3CNC:
    Your ramp angle is way too steep...try 0.75 degree instead.
    Aim for a chipload of 0.0001" and run it as fast as your spindle will go.
    Keep it slathered with Rapidtap and go for it.
