    That sort of operator's panel is not uncommon on high-volume production machines. Toyoda does this a lot on small machines - Roll up a Fanuc control interface, and stuff it behind a custom HMI screen...

    Again, not to be a jerk, but something is bad wrong with your machine. In 1018, you should be able to take any cut you want with that cutter, at that length, in basically any spindle.

    I have (3) SL35 lathes, and (3) MCV-50 mills at our shop. I'll be nice about it, and just say that they make good parts I guess.

    I would never buy a new Samsung machine. It's old tech for "today"...

    I don't mean to be a jerk, but a 6" gage line tool, with a 5/8" diameter milling cutter should not be damaging a 40-taper spindle.

    Is the total gage-length of the tool really just 6" long, or do...

    I wouldn't bother trochoidal milling in grey iron. It's too easy to cut.

    Here's the secret with abrasive materials.

    Each time an endmill's tooth enters the cut, it accrues "mileage" - It has to...

    Bob, same nose radius, same holder, just swapped inserts.

    The TH1000-MF2 Carbide insert, has a .002" x 5* negative land on it's cutting edge. Cutting depth is .020" per side.

    Get ready for stinky dust.

    Grey iron is abrasive, but it cuts easily. It will cut well, but it will wear tools a little quicker than mild steel.

    Tony, I'll have to bone-up on my iron-phases to give you a more scientific understanding of the problem.

    They will do just fine, provided you select the tool carefully.
