Amana tool library

Here is a .csv for the Amana tools which Carbide 3D has begun selling.

Feeds and speeds are copied from similar Carbide 3D tooling for MDF and are untested:

User-Amana.zip (792 Bytes)

Here is a version which has the Amana feeds and speeds copied into it — breaking this up and naming it appropriately by appropriate materials and updating the feeds and speeds to match what the machine can actually cut at is left as an exercise for the reader:

User_Amana_tools_Shapeoko_Various.zip (834 Bytes)

Additions and corrections are welcome.

EDIT: Note

Amana inserts actually have a 0.015"-0.030" flat (based on the measurement of some 1/4" inserts)

makes me wonder if there’s a place for a github project where folks can work together on these CSV files

how do you add this to the tool library

Use Carbide Create 445, edit the Tool library, duplicate a library, giving it the name you want, then do Help | About | Open Data Directory and quit Carbide Create. Replace the .csv which CC made in that folder with the downloaded one.

For those using F360; I imported Amana’s entire tool library and just deleted what I didn’t have and/or modified a very similar model # to be the one that I had.

Here’s that library:

I’ll note that for Vectric users they also have a file which will import into Vectric software:

Will, I was wondering what has happened to you book that you were putting that I thought was to be ready this month.

The book is running behind schedule — I’m working on putting together an announcement on it before the year is out.

I am wondering on the file above: It shows the RC-1148 angle to be 60º i thought we where suppose to divide that in half when entering into CC? Like image below.

That was with CC316 and earlier — they use the taper angle. The new version uses the nominal angle.
