Roughing with diffrent size endmills

Recommended Posts

Sorry It's been a long time since I was shown or if I was ever shown. I want to rough out using pocket mill but with different size end mills starting with a 1" then .5 all the way down to a .125 diameter. When I chain it and run the 1" and then go to the .5" how do I keep it from re-cutting what the 1" already cut. Do I have to re-chain it again for what is left?

You can use dynamic mill and select stock also. It will chop the corner away at the step over of your choice. Helps to keep the flutes from loading up and breaking
