What do you think about this video?

Fukeles79: Hello,
I love your videos. They are very learned. Please, where I can buy this bit in europe. Is it onsrud artikel no. 65 012 or any other? Thanks in advance. Mark

Luka Hrastnik: You have really nice machine, what are the speeds that you can run it IPM. I'm billding myself a cnc and dont know what ballscrew would be good for me beacuse of rpm limitations of screws,my  1000mm longest ax, would be 1605 ok ?

Migueldeservantes: Do you have a phone number to talk some business?

Neo7CNC: No doubt that was a hack clamp job I did for sure :) I do much better in my recent videos. Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try and thanks for watching.

Bigwingrider1800: What's happening radioshack, just curious why don't you back up the the other end of the clamps (your gonna move a part one day there's no clamping power that way). Also when I cut I ramp in .25 deg, easer on everything (cutter,screw,spindle). just an observation. great vid's keep it up brother..

Anko Dragt: 0.05 doc? That's 0.127mm? Seems like alot more in the video

Neo7CNC: It's a type of 1/4 inch Loc-Line hose connected to my air compressor. You can find starter kits on amazon and ebay. Thanks for watching.

Simon Creasey: Hi what is the red and yellow tube called that blows away the chipings?

SUPER NITRO: Nice machine

Neo7CNC: I don't run any backlash comp thanks goodness. My toolpath was a little rough I'll admit. I try to climb whenever possible. Thanks for watching

fukenbroken1: Cool Machine!!! I am wondering if you have backlash compensation? Climb cutting on conventional machines is not recommended for that reason. In my 38 years of machining, I have seen some real damage to machine and part. I have run a few CNC machines. If the feeds and speeds are right you can't notice the difference in finish with either method of machine. So safety is my only concern.

Evan Bunke: That's a really strange toolpath, I would have probably gone with a morph spiral, does your CAM software not have that option?

jeremy gray: I have a 3hp water cooled spindle. So i ordered a koolmist setup last night for 99 bucks. hopefull i get it in time for this job. I called onsrud and they said i could use soap and water. if you have any other advise or find anybody who has cut 5052, let me know.

Neo7CNC: Thanks, I'm running the KL-6050 stepper controller on all 3 axis' and all 3 steppers are the same model KL23H286-20-8B

Neo7CNC: I haven't. I know the 6061 is fairly hard. You coulf try it with just an air blower and the right bits and it it's too sticky add a mister. What's your spindle on your machine?

jeremy gray: have you ever used 5052 aluminum?

Neo7CNC: It's 6061. Onsrud spec'd this bit out for me based on my RPMs. It has a lot of clearance to evacuate the chips. The air blower helps as well. I've never loaded this bit but I have with the 1/8 cutter. I have experimented with a mister recently. Cutting finish was better, most importantly the bit stays cooler and you don't get and build up on it. I think life of the tool would be increased with the use of the mister

jeremy gray: What kind of aluminum is this. I have to cut some 5052 here pretty soon and i here it gums up real easy. Every seems to say you need lube, but you seem like you don't need it. In one of your other videos you mention about getting a mister of some sort. Why?

Mark Kotyk: Purdy table.

airdeano: part 2.... the ghost allows the mill to stay in bounds to turn around or change direction without command. plus when the exterior wall is ghost, the lead-in and lead-out start on an invisable wall.
