Re: Holes with interrupted cuts / offset holes, how to cut?

Yeah, those annular cutters are not cheap, especially the 2” depth of cut ones! I had access to several 1” depth of cut ones, but not anymore since I switched up employers.

Re: Holes with interrupted cuts / offset holes, how to cut?

I like the annular cutter idea, if I come across any for a good price I'll have to get some.

Holes with interrupted cuts / offset holes, how to cut?

One of my projects has been drilling some aluminum alloy wheels for a different bolt circle. Where I am drilling there is an existing 1/8” (roughly) dia hole about 1/2” deep that was used to secure the cap. The drill for the new hole has it’s web entirely in uncut material, but the existing hole is ...

Re: MEK sources

In California I cant seem to fine MEK or turpentine anymore. Luckily Oregon has the “good stuff”. The Oregon Lowe’s stores even have a handy chart in the solvent isle that shows what is comparable with what. I am sure that fine woodworkers in California are probably doing moonshine like runs to get ...

Re: Best way to remove material?

I'd probably lay it out with dye, drill out all the material I could, then clamp them down to a rotary table just to make dealing with all those goofy angles a little easier. If you were to get carried away with the math you could probably do the whole job off the DRO with the rotary table, but woul...

Re: Beryllium copper

There was a time in the mid 1990's that Beryllium alloy bicycle frames were the "In" thing if you had a wad of cash to burn. Just in case Titanium wasn't obscure enough.
