Artistic milling

Postby LollyPop » Sat Oct 03, 2015 5:38 pm

Hello everyone..
I would like to ask the following:
a) how to mill a pocket leaving the top outside edges without burs. And when cutting an outside profile ??

b) The quickest way in for directing the spindle in cambam around the top outside edge of a profile so as to engage quick clean up.

Thanks in advance

Let the cutter motion be anticlockwise for the outside pocket and vice versa for inside profile, such that cutting edge will be facing the
oncoming work edge.

The one that ConcernedMachinist is talking about is called Conventional Milling. If you were to try Climb Milling it would give you very neat edges though it would require your machine to have rigidity and minimum backlash.

So, which one do you recommend The7umper? Is it climb milling or conventional milling..?

Conventional milling should work best for you.
