Comparison between FSWizard and HSM Advisor

Hi, I am new to CNC but have soon found out that speeds and feeds are very important.

I downloaded FSWizard for android, entered an end mill and got some recommendations on speeds and feeds. These looked reasonable but I was looking for Plunge Feed and Speed which I couldn't find in the app.

So I downloaded HSMAdvisor and entered the same data and got very different results and the Plunge speeds and feeds look frightening.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but not sure what. Any ideas?

Here's the data from HSMADVisor with the results from FSWizard underlined

There is definitely something going on there.
Perhaps you inadvertently changed Manufacturer Settings for the tool.

Please see the attached screenshot for reference.
Make sure the Manufacturer Settings are set to default (green) color.

If not (Most probably so), click on Speed and Chipload labels to reset it to default.

After that you will get more than reasonable numbers.

Best regards.

PS. You can also click Reset button and set everything to default. This will also fix the issue.
