  • where can i find info on millling?

    i just wanted to find some info on milling. i bought a milling machine about a year ago and was looking for more info on the web. the manual gave me the basic operation of the machine. looking for a general how to guide and some tip or trick of the trade. i bought a shop fox m1007

      The question has been asked before, so a search of the archives ought to turn up some leads for you. Here's one to get you started: http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/sho...=books+milling

        Try the last one onthis list:http://www.army.mil/usapa/doctrine/9...lection_1.html

        Also WD is OK for aluminum but try something heavier like thread cutting oil for steel.

          i did a search yesterday and cam up with 20 pages using the word guide. after going through the first 14 pages i got an error message on the 15 page. i also been searching the web for the past year. there r not too many forum for milling, the only one i really can find involve cnc machines, which i do not own or know how to operate.

          thanks for the link and advice

                By the way, I bought two cheap sets of end mills to learn on and they are serving me quite well. So far I have only snapped two in the learning process. Enco has them on sale now for something like $46.00 and there is a free shipping code for them floating around the site here somewhere.

                http://www.use-enco.com/CGI/INPDFF?PMPAGE=119&PMCTLG=00 the sets I have are the 20 piece sets. I don't think a real machinist would be caught dead using them but then again, I'm not a real machinist but retired photographer
