    As I recall, your response, which I quoted, was a diatribe on reliability. Which, I noted, I have no problems with. Which was the point of my...

    Anyway, do rapids matter? Absolutely not, if youíre doing 16 hours of 3d profiling with a single ball mill like Bob. Got multiple tools on short...

    Well, to be honest I pulled the 10% figure out my butt. Regardless, I found the bleeding edge of what it would do, RELIABLY, and backed off a bit. ...

    IIRC youíre running steppers? Safety is them hitting a hard stop and slipping. No harm done. Crank up the accel and jerk until you lose steps,...

    I think the GenSwiss ER holders are a better solution as they locate off the taper rather than the face of the collet, but YMMV. ...

    Problem is the stop collar would locate off a non-precision face of the collet. This locates on the taper, giving the best possible accuracy.

    Lots of ways to skin the motion control cat, and the bundled one isnít necessarily the best one. Itís the one that leads to the fewest service calls.
