One of HSMAdvisor users asked me for help figuring speeds and feeds for machining stainless on his underpowered Tormach 700.
He volunteered to send me a model to work on, so I decided it was a good opportunity to make a learning video and share it with everybody.

I must say programming for such a low-power machine is a lot harder than for a full-blown production VMC where you are not worried about stalling your machine with anything under 1" in diameter:

Your thoughts and comments are always welcome.

I live by HSMA, it takes into account so many factors and calculations that are tedious for the everyday programmer. Watching this video makes me feel so grateful for the CHook you developed, we have a custom tool and holder library and all we do is select them and fire HSMA. All the tool data and stickout is populated and all I need is my material, LOC, WOC and voila !

^ I am glad that you are using the tool library.
I put a lot of work into it and unfortunately not all people realize how useful it can be.
Oh and the work is already going on updating the Chook to the latest version.
