Anyone have some extended reach 1/8" endmills? I’m trying to figure out a good feed and speed setting to start with in white pine. What DOC, feeds and speeds do you run it at? G-wizard gives me deflection warnings no matter what I try. Specs:
Flute length: 1"
Tool stickout: a little over 2" at most
I don’t want to break this sucker on the first time out of the gate, so even taken small DOC at about .05", G-wizard says I’ve got it wrong. Deflection is the main thing I’m worried about; I will adjust feeds and speeds for good chip removal and tool life once I’m confident I won’t break it. Even with the turtle slider all the way to 1%, It warns me about .000247 deflection. How much deflection do I really need to be concerned with?
