Hi,

Yep, it will machine well. I use cutting speed of 80fps to 90fps depending on the size and power of the machine I'm running.

Is that right? fps? Not fpm?

Yeah, that mistake seems to be gaining in popularity here. I've noticed it several times recently.

That's the problem with writing laxity, bad grammar, poor spelling, etc., mistakes multiply like rabbits.


.... or maybe fps was intended but the quantity was off by a factor of 60.

Use carbide mills and it's all good;):cool:

It's high speed machining, brough.
You cut it so fast, the chips don't even
land on the machine table. That is how
to roll.

I think he meant 80-90 SFM, SFM meaning surface feet per minute. With hss tooling that would be about right.
RPM=SFM*3.82/cutter dia
611.2=80*3.82/.50. Might be a little too fast on a manual mill.
