    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Well that certainly worked better! I did have some issues getting the cut started, the blade would spin in the arbor once a couple teeth were engaged. I had to bump up the rpm to around 70-80 rpm, maybe 1.25 in/min feed (62SFM - .0016in/tooth). Constant cutting after full engagement at 50 rpm...

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Thanks guys, I've updated the toolpath as follows. Should have more engagement.

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    I've got a new saw, 3" OD HSS with a lower tooth count (30) because it was the only one available for same day pickup. I'll test again with a lower rpm and report back. I've also adjusted the tool path to cut on the outside as per FredC's advice. As a researcher, changing multiple variables...

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Water jetting was my first idea too. We're making a handfull of these rings, and they have lips on them so they can be re-stacked concentrically to make a tube of varying and precice length, so each ring will be different length to give us some variability (like weight plates being added to a...

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Actually, while I'm at it. is high or low tooth count better for stainless? I can adjust for a consistant feed/tooth regardless, but I'm sure theres a right and wrong.

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Okay, so likely just running too fast and taking too light of a chip load, which can be solved by slowing rpm. Maybe a HHS will work after all, worth the $30-$40 to find out im sure. This makes sense. I copied the slitting feeds and speed for 304 off of another post, but Im now realizing he...

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    I am also just noticing that the spec sheet says .002-.006" per tooth feed. Can this really be the case for such a high tooth count (56)? 5in/min seems pretty quick for 40 rpm. 1/8" per turn. Dangerous assumption to make 😁

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Ouch, painful indeed. I can give it a go, but may be up in the 80-120 SFM with a carbide saw to getthrough that weld. Thanks for the data sheet, I wasnt able to find that. Would I drop the feed to maintain the feed per tooth, or am I taking to light of a cut here? Noted, will likely go with...

    Slitting Saw Feeds and Speeds Stainless

    Looking for some feed and speed advice for using a slitting saw in 304 stainless, general toolpath advice is also of course welcomed. I have a roughly 10" diameter, 1/4" wall stainless tube that I need to part off into rings using a Haas VF-2. A lathe would be ideal I know, but we dont have one...

    Awesome, thanks Jdub. The file is too large to attach, so here's a link to a printables post. I haven't tested it yet but I'll follow up when I have.

    I've been designing and 3D printing some indicator mounts for my neighbor. So far I've made a mount for his BXA tool post and for the ways of his import machine to measure the carriage movement. I'd like to make one for his 10EE which he is planning on making his main machine, but I dont have...
