I am interested in purchasing a Nomad 883 for machining HDPE and 6061. The parts I want to machine are on the larger side and I am concerned that the parts in 6061 will be too much for the machine to handle. Attached is a picture of one of the items I would like to produce. The outside dimensions are 8" long x 6.114" wide x 1.66" tall. 60% to 70% of the material will be removed. Do you think this is too big of a project for the Nomad in 6061? If not, any estimates on the duration of the job? Will I need to add an auto lubricant and/or a dust collector to remove the chips?
Any help is appreciated.
