Milling on metal designed VMC

Postby MuteButton » Fri Jul 31, 2015 3:02 am

Hi folks,
Can i get a person here who has experience milling wood using a machine that was originally designed for metal? Am yet to engage in woodwork therefore would like to inquire on the range of RPM that am needed to do wood milling in? Will i require some tools that are specifically designed for woodwork? As for now am thinking that i will have to run it without a coolant which implies that i will have to cover the coolant drains and set up a vacuum. What other issues could i possibly run into?

Hi to you too MuteButton,
A friend of mine tell me that he is able to machine walnut, stainless steel, brass, walnut, and chess pieces of white oak by use of bit ground from a parting blade on a Grizzly G0602 lathe. In order to avoid having very thin pieces we engaged in redesigning the wood pieces. He doesn't run the lathe at full speed because he is concerned with excess wear.
