    Concur that a test held between a chuck and center is not a good test. You need a longer/heavier piece of stock for your chuck held test though. >1.5" x 8-10" aluminum works well, heavy wall tube...

    2HP is likely pushing it even with slow ramp speeds. It may not even let you enter the nameplate amperage for the motor. I went right for this and it works great. This did involved a substantial...

    What does that have to do with this thread. This tax action by Trump is pointless and yet you’re still bashing Dems instead of acknowledging it’s a dumb move whether you support him or not.

    I'm not sure about the one side sharp and one side jagged but not breaking as has been mentioned is very likely the combination of your DOC and feed, and maybe speed too. You've got a good DOC but...

    I'm picturing a U or C shaped piece as the final product. I'm wondering if the vice is collapsing the shape when it becomes unsupported, and pinching the EM or allowing the workpiece to move.
