The latest video from our instagram #DestinyTool hashtag;
"I am Peter, the owner of Precision Machinery & Tooling in Pearl City, HI. This has been one of our more popular vids. Had a nephew goofing around with a #gopro and took this sequence.
The material is 2" round A-36 hot rolled, initially machined in another mill for the shank. Then in the 4th axis on this mill with a parametric program to index a small amount, make sure we are not done yet, and take another pass till math says we are done. The opening operation gashes the part to profile, then it indexes the last pass all the way around.
We are def a mill shop so we don't get around to repairing lathes like we should...."
We had to get 50 of these weld on pipe tips out. 4th axis and a parametric program knock them out. 1/2" 6 fl destiny endmill.
We used a DestinyTool Raptor, 1/2", 3/6 flute, approx 3/4 - 1" loc 2800 rpm, mist coolant, 50 ipm on approx .035 to .05 doc. started with a tired one, got about 2/3rds of the way through, changed to new and ran way past that job.
