Should my manual mill with power feed on the x-axis be able to use HSMAdvisor to good use?
I broke a 3/8" cutter the other night and wanted to try your program and put in the parameters I know about my Bridgeport J-head mill (and was using when the endmill broke), but can't find the "Max Torque" value for the J-head Bridgeport anywhere. Â I "Add"ed the Bridgeport as another machine under "Machine Limits" and played with the "Max Torque" by lowering it several times, but I'm getting what I feel is an unrealistic "DOC" value that never changes when I change the "Max Torque".
BTW, I am starting work on building my CNC mill. Â So, if HSMAdvisor isn't the tool for me now with the manual mill, I look forward to using it when I get my CNC up and running.
Thanks for your efforts,
