    Fly Cutter Tool Geometry

    Another approach could be to use one of those carbide braze on lathe tools and mount that in the fly cutter. KMS Tools and busy bee have them. Cheap. They look similar to Brent’s drawing.

    Wanted: CNC Mill

    I’m looking for a vertical Cnc mill like a Haas mini or TM1P. Or another make with a tool changer and made relatively recently. Something that works and isn’t a “project”. Maybe you have one you’d like to sell?

    Sand blasting? Bead blasting?

    I think they charged me for when I arrived to when I went in to pay. It’s by the minuteish $2.40/min on the invoice. I could have quibbled over 10 min probably should have. Still $100 for this seems ok to me. I wish I could keep the colour as is. Where can I get silver grey metal paint? Spray...
