In this video I’m Milling an Aluminium Bottle Openers on my CNC 6040 Router. I wanted a good vice for my CNC Router for a long time but it took me a while to find one that was small enough to fit on my machine. ...

Using a vice, instead of the t slot clamps that come with the CNC 6040 router, has some benefits. I want to test some face milling on Aluminium in the future so having a fixture that leaves the top surface without obstacles is necessary. The double flute carbide end mills that I used work reasonably well on Aluminium. In a small test cut I did before this video I got even a nice surface finish on the sides of the opener. Unfortunately I made a mistake by mounting the vice in the middle of the table. the flexing of the gauntry and the machine bed is the worst in this position. Like you can see in the video, the surface finish is pretty bad because these vibrations. I will make another video of these end mills because I think they have a good price quality ratio for everyone that starts with a cheap router like the CNC 6040. I’m thinking of keeping this beer opener design as a test workpiece for every new end mill I’m going to test on the CNC 6040 Router. They don’t take too long and the need several milling operations (face milling, pocket, contour, engraving and chamfer edge) Discount links to the stuff used in this video: Heavy Duty Drill Press Vice Bench Clamp Woodworking Drilling Machine:http://bit.ly/2ohvRPj (10% OFF Coupon:Elec) Double Face Rubber Hammer:http://bit.ly/2ojjgLr (10% OFF Coupon:Elec) precision steel parallel:http://bit.ly/2BVUtXG Double Flute Spiral End Mill Set :http://bit.ly/2LAf2Zf Ball Nose End Mills:http://bit.ly/2PNjozd ................... music credits: First song Me 2 (Feat.

If you've ever spent any time milling I am sure you've also broken, crashed and snapped your fair share of end mills. They're expensive little things, so why should you throw them out just because they serve no purpose to make chips any more? Make something new from them instead!

Plunge milling! Got tricky, hard-to-access geometry? Plunge milling could be the answer! This is a great way to get MORE out of your mill. While it takes a little more effort to set up this toolpath, it's worth it! Today, instead of choking up, let's go all out and use a full length 4.1" (103 mm) TTS M12 Threaded Arbor + Shearhog to see what happens! Then, we'll use the plunge milling strategy in a more practical application: with a standard 1/4" (6.35 mm) end mill! Although traditional machining strategies "work" here, the question is: DO WE HAVE PROCESS RELIABILITY? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Links for this video Fusion 360 Files: https://www.nyccnc.com/how-to-plunge-mill/ TTS M12 Threaded Arbor: Long | http://bit.ly/2Mz7ve4 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Reach us / CNC Info: Learn Fusion 360 Tutorials, Speeds & Feeds, Entrepreneurship Advice: http://www.nyccnc.com NYC CNC on Facebook: http://facebook.com/nyccnc Saunders Machine Works Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/saundersmachineworks ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I discovered machining as a young adult and am grateful to have found something I love and am able to share with others.
