1-800-544-8436 FINDING YOUR OPTIMUM CHIP LOAD When the chip is too small, the cutting action will generate heat in the cut and will cause the cutting edges of the tool to deteriorate prematurely. A larger generated chip within the reference range for a particular material will achieve the longest tool life. You can find your optimum chip load, which will allow you to maximize productivity and get the best tool life and lowest cost per panel, if you follow the steps below: Start using the recommended chip load and slowly increase your feed rate until the finish quality becomes unacceptable. Then slowly decrease feed rate again until desired finish is restored. Make note of your feed rate. Next, decrease the machine RPM's until the finish deteriorates. Once that occurs, increase RPM's until finish is once again restored. At this point, you have found the “sweet spot” .

1-800-544-8436 SPOIL BOARD / FLY CUTTER A clean and level spoil board is prerequisite to good vacuum hold-down and machining accuracy. When setting up machining program, the routing tool should extend beyond the work piece and penetrate the spoil board by 0.3 0.6mm. Periodic resurfacing of the spoil board to maintain a flat, even surface is most efficiently performed with a large diameter fly cutter. (available in 40mm, 80mm or 100mm diameter). For best performance these cutters should all be mounted in an HSK heat shrink tool holder

1-800-544-8436 HIGH QUALITY SURFACE PLANING TOOL An insert tool with special insert knives and edge radius provides a superb surface finish for applications such as MDF shaker style cabinet door cut outs. Using two additional tools (a 1/2 solid carbide bit and a 1/16 solid carbide bit provide the ability to produce a square corner cutout in MDF doors. For optimum results, this tool should be used on an HSK heat shrink tool holder. Insert knives also available in PCD (Diamond)

1-800-544-8436 INSERT REBATE CUTTER For rebate or deeper surface planing cuts, these insert tools provide a very economic solution as the replacement insert knives, when the tool is dull, usually cost under $6.00/cycle. The solid carbide inserts are available in different carbide grades to facilitate efficient cuts in either wood or composites.

1-800-544-8436 DEEP POCKET MORTISE CUTS The further the cutting edge of a tool gets away from its clamping source, the more deflection is created and the bigger the risk of tool breakage. Considering the rule of thumb is that cut length shouldn’t exceed three times the cut diameter, that means that cutting a deep mortise pocket can represent a challenge. Special deep pocket mortise bits solve that problem as they are made from a very special high density alloy that prevents deflection and tool breakage despite the depth of cut.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
