Holy!... Old meets new! I finally got the fitting job done on my 6" shell mill so it would fit the arbor i've been using for another..older model shell mill.
The new one uses APKT inserts.
things are unreal!
horizontal mill...in a hurry...kinda looked like a light "trim cut"...hmmm...doesn't seem to be cutting..run it in another .025...still nothing...run it in .050...still nothing...ooops...the very rough flame cut Weldox 100...it was totally finish cut!
This cutter cuts so free you don't even realize it's cutting...total silence...beautiful finish! All the chips go straight down...why I couldn't see it was cutting.
New(er) tech? I likey!
