    Is the power on?
    Is the program written in RS-274?
    Have you considered calling a tech?
    Has it moved in the past? Or, have you...

    I assume that because the parts are "pre cut, by the customer"...that using a bar isn't part of the conversation.

    I also assume that because it's pre cut, it isn't bar. It's probably a larger...

    It's a balance or trade off. If you chamfer before threading you end up with a sharp partial. If you do it after, you end up with a bit of a pushed over partial....if you plunge straight into the...

    Just about every Machinist over 55 that I can think of is missing some appendage. Sometimes it's their brain appendage, but usually it's fingers or partial hands.

    28x diameter isn't even deep yet. 7"x7" Start the hole as best you can. I think the worst thing that could happen is "dubbing" the Drill incorrectly. If one cutting edge favors another, guess what...

    Don't take it wrong, I'll Threadmill basically everything. The problem I see, is that tiny Threadmills are single point, so you'll end up with stringers down in your hole. And tiny chips from 17-4...

    It has to be on a seperate line of code though. So an X move or whatever. What would be interesting is if you could do it in the middle of the cut.

    Or, just use a plain Grooving Tool from the ID. Even if it's only partially through. Then come in with your pat-off Tool. Eliminate the "hanging thread".

    But I'm almost positive the Main library can hold 56k. It's not a Fanuc. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    You're cutting 8620. Pretty sure it's made out of melted VW buses and M-16's from the 60's. Predicting a chip in almost any cut parameters is going to be difficult.
