Anyone Machined 7075-T6 on a Nomad?


#1

I have a project coming up that will require making parts from 7075 aluminum. Has anyone tried to machining this on the Nomad yet and have good speeds and feeds for it? I’ve done a couple parts out of Nickel Silver so I can use that as a starting point if needed but thought someone else might have already done the legwork.

A couple of folks have using a Shapeoko, and there are some notes at: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Materials#7075

Going by the filename, these settings also works for 7075 as well as brass: Knife Handle Project Overview and files
