    Just to clarify, is that 54F or 54C?

    Because 54F is a bit too cold, and 54C is much too hot - sounds like it's time to service the chiller.

    It's been a while, but I was buying StammCut 950 Brass for a team of Mitsubishis, including a MV1200. Don't remember the price difference, but it always unspooled nicely and was at least as clean as...

    I seem to remember that CobraCut B being really soft and difficult to thread - especially in a tall part. Those old AGIEs lacked any kind of straightener / annealer, which didn't help matters much....

    Bob,

    Is that raised boss, the center hub, present on both sides of the part? If so, Pete and Brian are both going to have to add some time, since flushing isn't sealed off.

    Gary,

    Have you tried stopping the cut just before it breaks through the tab? If there's just a few thou, you should be able to pull your shims & break it off by hand, no?
