  1. If you're not pushing it hard enough to pull the...

    If you're not pushing it hard enough to pull the tool holder out of the spindle you're not pushing it hard enough to break a pull stud. From my understanding that is what they break from during use,...

    You're fine with a 1/2"x1-1/4" or 1-1/2" endmill, as long as you don't stick it in a 4" projection holder. Frank makes some wonderful stubby sidelock holders.
  3. They are not so fragile you can't use them, but...

    They are not so fragile you can't use them, but you do have to listen to them and gently push their limits as you learn them, same as any machine. I think the biggest drawback of a 30 taper is you...

    Frank, what do you think is it that breaks the 30 taper pull studs? The tensile strength on a through coolant type is around 11,000 lbs so it's not drawbar tension. And if you pull the tool holder...

    30 tapers have been my choice for the last 25 years. How capable they are depends on how you use them. Keep your projections to a minimum and tailor your tools, speeds, and feeds to their strengths...

    Like any end mills, the corn cobs from different manufacturers have their strengths and weaknesses. I like Garr for 1/4" and smaller but haven't tried their larger sizes yet. They are very free...

    Keep an open mind! If you have never tried the Harvey 5 fluters for aluminum you may want to. The surface finish is a little better than my Destiny Vipers, not two extra flutes better, but the...

    The only time the tool is the limiting factor instead of the work holding is slotting with a 3/16" mill. For that I ran it at 6k and 120 ipm at .225" doc. Chip clearing was the limiting factor...

    I am in total disagreement with you on this. I found rougher/finishers to be a total waste of time, I still have a few NIB from close to 20 years ago when I tried them out, Destiny Diamondbacks with...

    I determined in the early 90s that it was impossible to get the bolt on fixed jaw carriers to not move on Kurt vises, so when I started my own shop I got a Kurt 3600. I don't see how a 6" vise can...

    The one I was involved with used fresh water to cool and drain either down the sewer or outside on the ground, same for the oil cooler on the molding machine. Our mold temps were normally 220f or...

    You can hardly tell it is in my peanut butter cookies, or I have a real good monster cookie recipe as well. There are mints that you can't tell are tainted, well at least not by their flavor.

    With a good post it works fine, IMO. But to get a good post you have to do it yourself or have it done.

    It's between $75 and $200 an ounce here in Washington, with 20% discounts every April 20th. The low end is at least 20% THC but better for cooking than smoking, the high end is pushing 30% THC. ...

    I have a 2001 with a Yasnac control but the tool changer is probably pretty much the same. Be real careful of maintenance mode, you can get into trouble. The manual isn't as clear about things as...

    My mill is a Kitamura, I go through way more waylube than coolant concentrate. It makes me really want a greased mill next, but that would mean linear ways :(.

    With your mineral oil sensitization in mind my vote would be Trim C320. It is a full synthetic for aluminum but it works well on steel too. I have been using it for over 15 years now. I use RO...

    I looked into it and talked with Walker chucks about it around 2002. With a good setup, you should get 72psi of holding pressure. You will need a demagnetize cycle at the end before removing the...

    I understand you wanting to keep all your machines similar but your arguments against 30 tapers is pure ignorance. To shed some light on the pull stud bullshit, it is not the pull stud that is the...

    I really try to buy American too, both as a consumer and as a producer of products, not just parts for someone else. It is not like Haas are really American is it? Where are there castings made? ...

    I think it would just slip in place, probably with the air off. Do make sure it will be put in an empty space in the carousel. Word of note if you are new to Kitamura, when the tool changer or...

    It totally depends on the part. I like to have around 1/8" of jaw under the part, but it depends on the part.

    Or if possible make the through-hole through the finished part by .01"? Perhaps cutting the part with a hole in it is harder than a floor with a hole in it?

    About PP converters. I have a 2004 10hp one that I have used 4-7 days a week since I got it. I had a board die around 2008, I suspect I had something to do with it. I called them up, we quickly...
