What's the secret to turning UHMW??? I was playing around with a 2 1/2" [6 inches long] solid rod. I wanted to turn it down to 2"
Problem was, as I made each pass the material was staying wrapped around the rod. Almost like thread or string.
Heavier cut? Was taking light passes of only .020" One buddy thought a larger radius on the nose of the cutter. Higher RPM? Currently working at 950rpm.
Any and all suggestion gladly accepted.
