Choosing the correct machine operation
« on: February 18, 2021, 08:55:57 am »
Hi There

I want to drill 4.8mm hole
My tool is 4mm

I tried to use Drill with Canned Circle and Profile
Both to no avail

I would appreciate an advice

Kind regards

Please use a drill mop
Drilling Method: Spiral Mill (CW)
Hole Diameter: 4.8
Depth Increment: The depth for each helix
Do not forget the tool diameter

Nissim, you'll get more educated usage advice here than on any other but one web site I know of.  And, you'll get it quickly.  There's always someone willing to help, pretty-much immediately.

The other is a pyrotechnics site, so it might not be (or might BE) of interest to you! <grin>
