I'm continuing to populate my tool table and came across a couple of issues I wasn't able to resolve with the online help pages.
First - I'm not sure how to enter various milling cutters with reduced necks. For example, I have some woodruff (key-slot) cutters with 3/8 shanks and 1/4" necks. Does HSMA take in to account the weaker geometry of the neck automatically, or should I enter the smaller neck dimension as the shank so the predicted deflection is appropriate?
Second - I don't see dovetail cutters as an available tool. I can sort-of set up a chamfer mill, but since HSMA doesn't accept angles greater than 90, the flues appear upside-down in the display and the cutter diameter is wrong since the 'tip' size and angle drive the cutter OD calculation. Any ideas on how to set up a reduced neck dovetail or something with similar features (threadmill, maybe?)
