Thanks @Vince.Fab! Seeing the work you have done on your machine really showed myself and I’m sure plenty of others what is possible with this platform.
I haven’t tried a single insert cutter yet, but I think thats definitely the next step. The inserts on mine are fixed, so I will have to look for one with replaceable inserts. I’ve tried tweaking speeds and feeds to reduce the “bearing noise” and in some cases it has helped a little bit, but its still very evident in the final finish.
Linear rails would be awesome! I think that’s definitely an upgrade for the future along with a SMW fixture plate and mod vise.
