Table of Tools ACTUALLY on Haas as of July 13, 2007

Note: Max cutting speeds are approximate and conservative, we should note successes with higher speeds--put them both here and in the Tool Info table below.
All endmills are extended-length except where marked "short". In Unigraphics, where you set Cut Depths, set Initial, Maximum = maximum in table below. Set Minimum, Final to half of that number.

Table of Info for Tools

This table gives the general info (tool reach, max. cutting depth, etc.) for all the different tools we could potentially have in the HAAS. Don't change this except if you are able to run the tools at faster cutting speeds--in which case do update it so we can all run the tools faster!
All tools are extended-reach except where indicated "short".

Cutting Parameters: Feeds and Speeds

(See Machinists Handbook or http://www.endmill.com/pages/training/spdfeed.html)
Depth of Cut: No greater than tool diameter. 1/2 of tool diameter is safer.
Width of Cut: No greater than 2/3 of tool diameter. 1/2 is safer.
