Re: Aluminum slot milling

when it gums up it's the aluminum melting. everything about machining metal is about controlling the heat. the thinner the material the less of a conduit it has to evacuate heat and the larger chance it has to start melting to the bit. also chip evacuation is key, they have already been cut so they ...

Re: Coolant or lubrication?

i have gotten the best results with blowing compressed air on the bit to remove chips from the groove while cooling the bit and lubricant. cutting oil has worked exponentially better than wd40. it doesnt burn off as fast and leaves a nice finish. adding oil to the air spray is probably the most cons...

dont sleep on the new carriage plate

dont sleep on the new carriage plate. i put off upgrading for a long time, i had plans to weld some angle pieces on the original to stiffen it but for the cost of it and the ease of putting it on it was a no brainer. much stiffer and all around better with the pem nuts being attached. im sure any fl...
