The old Abom79 videos were excellent to!
I miss having access to a good media blaster. My compressor isn't remotely close to pushing enough air for one.
Are you using air for chip evacuation on the mill? I don't know how much of the finish on that part was due to chips tearing up the surface, but it's a potential problem. You also might your tool holder for runout.
Maybe it was just a bad mill, but you can check for other problems easy enough.
So I was going to ask you f you guys had seen chipwelding when manually tapping a hole, but then the tap had other ideas. Guess I am doing something else today
They make tap burners you can put in a drill press. They are super handy.Now that would be a fun toy to have in the garage!!!
