101 or 110? I have a prototype job coming up where I'll be machining
about 100 weird small gaskets out of copper. I don't look forward to
milling copper (I'm more of a plastic guy). I know, two flute, high
RPM, coated carbide, light DOC. My question is this, given a choice
between 101 and 110, does anybody know which is better to machine?
Not just flat. Protrusion features on both sides (two setups). Will
require a 1/32" endmill for a .039" slot. Max spindle speed only 5000
While we're at it, should I dump the water sol coolant and switch to
oil for one job? Perhaps a can of oil and a brush?
But the question right now is do I order 101 or 110?
145 etc is not an option.
110 much easier than 101 - 101 is oxygen free, electronic grade - very
gummy, loves to gall & weld to tools.
Try some 145 when you get a chance = mechanical properties similar to 110,
MUCH easier to machine.
