Anyone have a speed & feed solution to parting off without the thin ring left over. Doing a thin .08 washer, SS416. The ID is .315, and the parting insert is .125 wide. Straight/neutral cut.
I am getting a thin .003-.005 ring, that needs to be broken off, and the washer ID hand chamfered. I am getting really nice surface finish from the parting tool, so I would prefer to know a parting method that doesn't require a custom ground tool. I figure this problem has been solved long ago..
