And it is not going well.
Part is out of 10MM 316ss, 3" long, some small RH threads, 1.5" of 10MM LH threads, +/- .001"s all over the damn thing. (it's a fancy ridiculously over-engineered grounding bolt)
How Can I get this material to turn worth a damn? Mostly having trouble with the threading, machine is an old citizen B12 so it only has G92, no fancy G76 for me.
Tried from 100-250SFM for the threading, and from .005 infeed per pass to .010, and any way I go I'm lucky to get 5 parts out of an edge....
The turning is going OK, i got maybe 15 parts out of one edge and and gonna sharpen it a little differently....
Anyone have any tricks for this godawful stuff??
Thanks in advance!
