    Agree fully with this.

    Also, in my opinion you're a little light on SFM. I run HSS in aluminum starting at 250...all drill sizes.

    There's a few of them that I've used that are probably cheaper per edge than what you're using now. Ingersoll Gold Trio comes to mind, Iscar H690, Seco Square Six.

    I only do it that way because I haven't learned the custom drill cycles in Mastercam and I was ashamed to admit it.

    In the time it took to drill that extra 3" of air on that first hole you could've hand coded the rest of the holes and had them ready to go by time that hole was done.

    SECO Square Six.

    The only thing you can't do with it is ramp, but beyond that it is a really versatile cutter.

    Five pages of comments and this is the highlight. We might all love machining and everything that comes with it, but we all enjoy the art of baby-making quite a bit more. It's universal.
