    Is John there or is he in the Pub.

    Just pushed this to the front to see if I can get some feed-back from John S on post #15

      Phil,
      Sorry missed this.

      The cutter in the picture is a single lip cutter, virtually an engraving cutter.

      The profile is not correct as the cutter is straight sided and was made for doing a rack. The 'gear' was just an exercise in checked the concept and the code which was a simple hand written sub routine.

      The cutter was the only one handy at the time, no idea where it is today, probably been reground into something else so no decent pics.

      This is the only one I have of the cutter doing the job it was made for.



      Unfortunately it's on the wrong side of the work in this shot.

        Thanks for that John, single lip engraving type cutter is as much as I needed to know, although not what I had hoped.
