|Roughing out with 1/2" endmill|
|After finishing off with the 6mm ballnose|
Short video showing the 6mm ballnose at work:
I notice during the milling process that the spindle was almost at the end of the Z travel. It was scaringly close. Thank God that I decided to go only for 10mm from the surface (z = 0). Can't imagine what will happen to my mill if I went for 15mm... I've ordered a precision toolplate with cam type fasteners from Hightech Systems. This will raise up the work by the thickness of the plate. From the vpost tracking, it has arrived in Singapore yesterday and should be delivered to me on Monday.
A short video of that:
I also ordered an ER32 holder, some collets, and an ER16 (3/4-16) adapter with this shipment. Hope these are the last I bought for the hobby this year.
