    Re: Newbie With Facemill Danger..LOL

    Try it at 300 rpm with a really slow feed, or 50 rpm if you can. The slower the rpm the better.

  4. Re: Cast heat resistance stainless material cutting

    Re: Post Help

    You have to be more specific.

    There really isn't anything in the post regarding the tool diameter. The toolpaths and geometry for the toolpaths are all set when you program a toolpath with a...

    Re: CNC thread deburr

    This is what I have done. It works for OD & ID threads. It adds time to the machining cycle, but it takes time away from having to do secondary operations.

    I cut the threads to size. Then I run a...

    The way the code is being posted is correct. The machine takes the Y values and turns it into a...

    Re: Teensy Weensy Drilling op help?

    There is no way 15 ipm will work with a .3mm drill bit.

    Max out the rpm and try a 0.0001" to 0.0002" chip load. At 15k rpm that puts you at a feedrate of 3 to 6 ipm. I would stay towards the...

    Re: Inconel 600/625

    I have mostly done 718.

    My experience is the sfm has to be really low. like 50 - 150. Can't do huge depth of cuts. Inserts with a neutral rake will last longer preferable the harder grades.

    If you can find a 2 or 3 flute endmill it would work better.

    I would break the depth of cut in half and do .75 at a time with HSM. 1.5" might be too much for one go at it. I usually do a 30 -...
