    Four Sided Machining with an Indexer

    I had a requirement to machine a part on four sides of the material. Ok, simple. Except, two of the sides tilted 6 degrees off vertical. To solve the problem, I used my indexer as the hold down and...

    Did the Z axis actually move or did your end mill slide out of the collet? An upcut end mill exerts quite a lot of downward pull on the end mill. If the collet nut isn't tight enough, it will pull...

    Shipping is likely to run about $400-$600 depending on if you need a liftgate or not. The owner would also have to palletize the blower, not an easy thing if you don't do it every day.

    I suggest using a bit of teflon shrink wrap tubing on the shaft to take up the play and provide a dry lubricant. That would probably be a cheap and easy fix.

    Great!

    As to your comment about the sander, you can easily get your indexer to spin by just doing a MB 36000 to get it to spin 100 times, then MB 0 to spin it backwards to zero.

    And... don't waste your money on some no name brand tap. Most likely, it will crack within two turns in steel. Get a Hanson tap. They seem to hold up well.
