    I use an Orange 17.5, usually set up as a reverse vise. This works VERY well for us. There are times I set things up as a double if better for the job.
    Kudos to Orange for great products, and great...

    Well done. I could not tell which control you had from your post, so didn't offer help. I used a lot of nested loops and subroutines when I had my Anilam machines. I didn't use the conversational or...

    I started off like you, and gradually got larger tumblers. I ended up using a decent sized rotary from Diamond Pacific that I got from MSC years ago. The last few years I added the 3 cubic foot Mr...

    I paid about $29K for my G control new (had 48K background and 48K foregorund, could edit in background while running and even drip feed!)- it used a YCM 3hp vari-speed knuckle head, manual speed...

    The date on it is 1988. I'm pretty sure the M was out by then. I bought my G control new in 1990, so it's likely out of a G. I had 2 of those, just one M, but I thought some of the pars were shared....

    I just went and looked in the top of the big toolbox. I still have a Anilam board. Unfortunately I tossed a couple of them years ago, thinking they were no longer useful This one could likely be...

    These days I find dual sport riding most attractive. 35-40 horsepower is enough, although I do have larger with about 125 (r1250GSA). The lighter stuff is really more fun.
    I've also owned a...

    I bought a new Cosen a few years ago. Zero problems. Holds +/-.002 on aluminum forever. Will actually do that on 17-4 annealed and pickled with the right blade and speed. Bought new so new headaches...

    Watching with interest. I had 3 mills with Anilam controls. Very friendly and easy to use. Reliable until age killed them. I'm sure lots of them out there. Would be very good for simple stuff like...

    I've been using a 10 hp 3-phase vari-drive rotary from Eaton for a few years. They make all the way down to 7.5 hp. It's been a good experience. Quiet. Electrical bill about the same or lower than a...

    Talk to anodizers in your area. If they know their stuff, you should be able to tell. A witness part is a good idea. Sometimes it can make a difference where the part is located in the tank -i.e....

    Pretty sure the bolded part above isn't correct. That should even work on your Haas. IIRC I've used cutter comp on multiple profiles, with rapid Z up and rapid XY then Z down at new location. (I'm on...

    I've used 11/32 for a 10X1.25 many times without issue
    8X1.25 is a very common thread size on metric motorcycles. Helicoils are your friend. If you want to go to the larger size, you might have a...

    Don't know how you are going to fixture this. My thought is to treat the affected area as torch cut slag. When I saw that alloy and a torch used I had a bad feeling about this project. Woodpecker...

    Some taps have the coolant escape built into the form of the tap, as opposed to just having straight cuts like a straight flute.
    I don't think you are going to have issues. All the Balax form taps...

    Since he has servo's I thought he had a control on there
    I've never seen a tracer still running as a tracer with servos. Since he said he has .025 width of cut, be interesting to see that done as a...

    Since this has been discussed, I did look at the Helical brand end mills. They look nice, but my price from Mari is quite a bit better.

    OP, I don't see what control you are using, so maybe you...

    5 fl, 1/4, 45 degree with the coating? or 6 fl? His pricing is better than others I've found, even though it takes a couple of weeks to get them.

    I've seen it 43-46 in my applications over the years. Typically 44-46, pretty much every time. It's not bad to machine. H1150 would be easier, about Rc33.
    If the corner goes, it's over. I'm having...

    Mari has some 6 flute 1/4 inch finishers that work very well on 17-4 H900. This is about Rc45 if you are not familiar with that material. Your .025 cut width would be very reasonable, I'm running 12%...

    I'm still looking for the material. Did I miss it?
    If the tool is rubbing, you are going to have problems.

    Be sure it's not cutter and cutting conditions limiting your ability to cut.
    You have a 40 taper, so the bearings are of decent size for smaller cutters. I'm not sure what you mean by 1" of taper...

    From here, I can't tell how you set up you parts, offset origin, etc.
    Is your tool offset number truly a positive number? Or did you forget to put a minus sign in there?

    Might need a G90 in there, or at the beginning of the program.
    Also, what is your G54 Z value?
