Re: Patio's projects

Thanks Pat for the link to the Norton book, this will help me when I try to sharpen some more end mills. :) I have sharpened some already with good results but the Norton book goes into much more detail than the Cutter Master book.

Re: Patio's projects

Nice job on the end cutters Pat. Your Cutter Master looks similar to mine, did you buy it new? Did you cut those end mills in the position shown in the first pic or did you turn the spindle 90d?

Re: Hazardous metal dust?

Yes, 2 1/2" AND 925 RPM. I tried reducing surface speed from 325 to 230 then to 160 to no avail. In fact the chatter got worse. I was feeding manually, I didn't have the guts to try a faster feed rate or power feed at a faster feed rate. I don't know if my Grizzly 14x40, (0554) is stout enough for t...

Re: Hazardous metal dust?

I started reading this thread from the beginning and although I never experienced any of the problems I found it very interesting. :) Well, guess what, it happens that I needed to make a set of dies to bend some 1" tubing on my metal bender. I made a 1/2" radius form tool from a Moe Max kobalt HSS. ...

Re: Milling a helix

Another "Nice Job" Harold. I too would like to see it in action. :) When i was still in Wa. and a member of an informal hobby machinists group one of the guys needed to make a helix cut in a piece of tubing and we "worried" how to do it without a CNC machine. Now I can see how it could be done on th...
