    The Anatomy of an End Mill Tormach Blog

    An end mill's overall reach, or length below shank (LBS), is a dimension that describes the necked length of reached tools. It's measured from the start of the necked portion to the bottom of the cutting end of the tool. The neck relief allows space for chip evacuation and prevents the shank from rubbing in deep-pocket milling applications.

    Tormach Personal CNC Mill gt Need to hold a 1 quot ball nose

    Jan 11, 2012 First post here, looks like an active forum! I've tried my best searching for an answer to this question. If it's already been answered many times, I apologize. I have a new part that needs to use a 1 ball nose end mill. Not major cutting, just need the curve. However, I can't figure out how to hold the mill! All the ones I find online are either 1 or .75 shank.

    Nov 12, 2009 I've had a few computer issues, so in the end I bought the new controller from Tormach. I was using a secondhand PC running XP; the specific problem was the mill sometimes going into incremental mode after a tool change. Most likely something to do with the PC not properly handling the VB scripts that are run during a toolchange.

    Don't Forget the Tooling End Mill Basics

    End mills are useless without a way to hold them in a machine. This is the job of a tool holder. And no, a drill chuck is not suited to hold your end mills. A collet is the most basic tool holder available. You will need to match the collet size to your end mill shank and the collet taper to your mill. In my case, the mini mill has an R8 taper.

In the tooling we got 100s of threaded end mills and a full set of Clarkson holders and collets. You never needed to worry about the end mill sliding in or out, its a very rigid end mill holder.

    When one end wears out, switch to the opposite end for two times the life of a standard carbide end mill. Made of solid carbide, these end mills are harder, stronger, and more wear resistant than high-speed steel and cobalt steel for the longest life and best finish on hard material. Use them to round sharp corners on the edge of your workpiece.

    ER Collet Basics Things You Need to Know to Tormach

    Holding an End Mill (or Other Tools/Stock) To get the best hold when placing your tool or stock into an ER collet, it’s best to have as much of the tool engaged with the collet as possible. If possible, having the tool run at least the entire length of the collet is ideal. This provides two major benefits that are really one in the same.

    May 15, 2015 My suggestion is buy a R8 3/4 Tormach Collet( special short flat bottom) , a few TTS ER16 or 20 holders, a few ER collets to suit your normal end mills and give them a try. Then if you don't like them or prefer R8 collets you have only spent a few dollars and somebody else will buy them from you so lost nothing.
