    I don't do much video editing but when I do I use my audio recording software - Reaper. It has fairly sophisticated filters that you can use to "learn" and then subtract background noise.

    I used a macro program for "safe cutoff." Basically, if the cutoff tool wasn't already at or a little past X0.0 it ran a program to safely cut the bar to the standard tool point. You did have to...

    Just to quick update, this tool did get the job done. I wonder if I had dropped the SFM a little bit and used more rigid toolholding (like a hydraulic or something) if I would have gotten better...

    I think the right tool for this job is a Seco/Niagara N13995, but if you can't reprogram you're unable to use it. 0.0065" DOC, 65% stepover, 12500RPM and 190IPM. I'm convinced the only way you can...

    Just use cheap Permatex RTV. DO NOT use Ultra Black LOL.

    It'll pry right out with a screwdriver or machinist scale.

    Still doesn't sound great but it at least sounds like it is cutting evenly and the chips appear uniform. Here's hoping it'll last another five parts!
