    1100 aluminum, even if cold-worked, is gummy. I believe burrs will be unavoidable. They can be minimized by using the sharpest tools you can get and keeping things cool and lubricated by flooding...

    I have used VFDs to run many different 3-phase motors designed and built before VFDs were invented, with no problems whatsoever. If there is a risk, it seems rather hypothetical in my experience....

    Yup, planer. With a broad-nose finish tool. My dad had a workbench/layout table from Challenge Machinery Co. similar to what you show. Wish I had it, went to house clean-out guy.

    Chico, no? Chino is down in LA halfway between downtown and Riverside. I imagine ReedPrentice would want nothing to do with LA.

    I would just loctite it. BTDT. It will hold if you clean and assemble correctly. 0.0015 interference on 1/4” is too much. That’s .006 interference on a 1” shaft.

    Nice! What year is the Dodge? My Dad ordered one brand new in 1963 through the local small-town Dodge dealer. I was 4 years old, and I have just haziest recollection of picking it up from the dealer....

    Oddly enough, the FP2NC has a horizontal spindle in addition to a vertical spindle, so the chip-clearing advantage of running horizontally is available. That won't fix what seems to amount to trying...

    Sounds like cutter deflection is a lot of the issue. A 3/8" endmill with 2-1/2" flute length is going to be exceedingly flexible. I would expect you are getting a lot of squeal (chatter). Are you?...

    Are you probing the surface to be engraved or some other feature? The workpiece surface may not be where your probe thinks it is, for example if the surfacing tool is an endmill that crept down in...
