Fighting floor finish problems in Aluminum

Recommended Posts

Does the surface finish look the same on single axis linear cuts? Even the Ballmill groove looks less than desirable, a tooling or process change may help, but I think you have a machine problem. What is the model of the machine?

Just a thought. Put an indicator in the spindle with a long enough axial sweep to get about a 10" dia. Zero out on the table and spin it by hand. How's it look?

When the draw bar or retention knobs fail on our Haas, the side walls and the floors look bad.

IMO, any cheap emill should cut the floor decent as long as it's dished.
