I'm sure you'd hate to see mine that I made out of cast iron on a R8 collet. Amazing finish for milling cast iron heads.That seems like a ton of weight on an r8 collet (or maybe yours is bigger), what does that weigh?
Nothing is wrong, I use it daily..Chad, what was wrong with your HQT cutter?
I get fantastic finish on iron and alloy. I drilled two holes in it for PCD and CBN. I only use the PCD for alloy and the tips supplied for iron and it is unbelievable. I saw you had problems with chatter on iron but I have not seen this.
Did you not sort that out?
Do those grubscrews mean that the tip holder can be adjusted by sliding in and out, effectively changing the flycutter diameter?
Can someone explain to me why this adjustability is needed? Is it to change tip speed?
