    bull, it's exactly 1.21 gigawatts.

    My house got hit by a bolt while I was building it. Blew about a 6" dia hole in the concrete slab. Scared the living shit out of me. I haven't done anything in...

    I have a job I run every so often, sound very similar to what you're doing. 1018, 1//8 wide x 1-1/2 deep. I tried everything I could think of. With a direct drive spindle there's no way to do it....

    I would go for a single profile threadmill. Do the math. If your cutting 5 threads at once, you increase the load on the shank by 5x.

    your "J" thread will have a modified minor diameter. 304 is very well suited for form tapping. When you say 1/8 hard, you'll find it to be a bit tougher than 1/9 hard.

    what we've done before, but with much tighter tolerances, is to clamp down a piece of sacrificial material so you can machine a full, or near full circle. Then it's easy to check.

    I don't grind much Inconel, but I just use a general purpose pink wheel. Parts come out nice, but I do need to redress the wheel quite often.

    ahh. That makes sense. FWIW, your spindle speed is awful slow, I would say 500 rpm is a conservative minimum.
