    Fantastic. Just wrote to Oberg Bros to see what they'd advise for a 1/2" end mill for hardwoods (ideally with a 5" total length since I'll be running some thick blocks of wood eventually).

    As far...

    Thanks Brady - you're very generous and meticulous with your advise.

    Sorry - I am actually working in inches: that .6mm was a typo and should have been .6".

    Thanks again Brady. Does Onsrud make a 1/2" end mill? It seems like such a basic bit, but oddly, I couldn't find anything carrying that name. (does it go by a different name?).

    For some reason my attachments got reduced to something too small to see. Does anyone know how to load larger pictures on here?
  12. Z lag (?) eats through my tabs and part - help!

    I have a 2014 PRS Alpha 96" x 48" that I'm going to use for two-sided 3D milling of hardwoods. I've run the leaf bowl sample file included with the machine and had no problem a few weeks ago. But...

    Thanks for the ideas. These look like great ball sanders. Any ideas for something flatter but still able to do concavities (like the Arbortech Contour Sander)?

    Arbortech recently released it's Contour Random Sander. I like that it wont leave directional sanding marks, but it's definitely better for smooth contours like a bowl or chair. Shipping from...
