    Did you just suggest enlarging a 3/8 hole to 7/8 using reamers? :nutter:

    I would have just left the stock slightly long and used a center in the end rather than mucking about with the steady.

    How are you checking this? Your lost motion is 1/64-1/32" if you're eyeballing this with calipers from an edge there is a good chance you're off.

    We can't help you with the machine specicially however if you post the code for a contour of that pocket we can take a look and at least tell you if you're doing something wrong there.

    From everything I’ve heard about AR500 it sounds like you’re getting exactly the tool life you should be getting.

    Solidworks can solidify STL files and then you could use either and intersection curve or “convert entities” on a suitable sketch plane.
