    I don't understand. Fly cutting is very easy, but a face mill is way too big for the job. You need a really itty bitty cutter to cut flies.

    Wait ... that is what we're talking about, right?

    Hello, #5,

    Yes, wood shapers (assuming a true wood shaper, not just a router mounted upside down) generally run a lower speed than a standard router ... generally in the vicinity of 10,000 rpm,...

    I can't comment on the other items, but with respect to the highlighted item above: in general, for 1 person / shift you're more likely to get two forearms rather than just one. There are of course...

    #5, I confess I was thinking in terms of the cost of the knives (blades) only, not factoring in the cost of acquiring the shaper. :)

    That said, I have seen many a used shaper on Craigslist for not...

    icecats,

    What size of rack do you need? I scavenged some rack (and maybe the pinions?) from some scrapped photographic equipment some years ago; may still have some of it out in the bone pile....

    You are ALL correct.

    This lengthy debate around ISO / QMS / etc. reminds me of other recent debates around regulation (OSHA, accreditation for higher ed, etc.)

    Well, that would be one flow. To get tri-flow, you'd need a laxative, diuretic, and emetic all mixed together. Yum!

    Philabuster, what sort of feed and speed do you use when machining with those 12 gauge shells? Any problem holding them in a collet?

    A good word, but it may cut both ways. I would say a key issue is having both the desire and the means to become aware of what you don't know. Unfortunately, not knowing what / that you don't know...

    In this situation, I would adopt a "take it or leave it" attitude, at least at the front end. To the school: either I'm insured against liability, or I will not teach the class. Your choice.

    That's interesting - I've never observed the lifting of the brushes, but then again, I haven't specifically looked for it. I'll have to take a closer peek at one of my R-I motors as I start it up!
