Re: [southbend10k] Fleet Maintenance facility???
I was using carbide inserts.
I don't experience any difficulty using carbide inserts on my lathe, I was running at around 800 rpm.
Threading was done with high speed at the lowest back gear RPM, without problem.
I had not done any stainless steel work for quite a while ago.
I got an amazing surface finish on the work, better finish than I usually achieve on normal steel.
(remember that most of my metal supply is from a scrap box and I don,t necessary know exactly what I am playing with)
Thanks for the info.
My last machining job was tool blocks for QCTP, block that I made with the natural rake angle for HSS cutters on the rocker type tool post. So far it works great.
My main project right now is re-scraping 2 straight edges. Takes forever!
