    General drilling

    How do I reduce the rats nest that collects on my 1/8" drill bits in 1018CR?

    Larger pecks than 1D? Sharper tools?

    Any 'best practices' that you guys/gals have is appreciated.

    Thx.

    Here's the problem inside of my spindle. It bends in by almost 0.003" exactly. :(

    Any ideas if something like this COULD be ground out?

    Spindel issues : replace / repair / move-on?

    A few months ago I got my first VMC and most things seemed to check out okay, for it being an older machine ('99).

    RustLick 'foaming' upon tank mix

    SO far I'm in this for $10k and I've had too many ppl steer me away from Haas despite the fact that I'm almost walking distance from the factory. I'm betting on the MORI name. Fingers crossed.
