That sounds like the intelligence level of the folks at the orange and blue big box hardware stores. The new house will have a skid steer loader with forks for "problems" like that... and an overhead hoist/crane system. I am getting old, and lifting machine parts is getting more difficult.

The home despot, yes.

Great house/shop plan there. I often think about putting rails through (around) my garage door. I've had the opportunity to use some multi-ton bridge cranes to lift small loads of a few hundred pounds. It feels silly, but was pretty fun at the time. It's nice to lift massive things with a pushbutton.

The best part of the new design is... The to be wife was the one who suggested I increase the ceiling height in the shop, under the house, from 10 feet to 12 feet. She wants enough room to have either an overhead crane or to e able to use a rolling bridge hoist.

I think she believes I might accidentally hurt myself... Oh... Never mind

The TiCN coated end mills I ordered are at home in the mail box, awaiting my arrival. As motivated as I am to get there and start my comparisons to the ZRN and DLC coated end mills, I will not be doing that tonight... Tonight is Girl Scouts and I am taking her.

I will post something, somewhere about my thoughts on the various coatings, once I get a chance to test them. I have noticed on thing... The DLC are "less sharp" than the ZRN coated ens mills. I am not sure if that will make a difference, but we will find out.

The plan is... I have to run a small batch of identical parts. I plan to set the speeds and feeds, use the same material, and the same air blast/MQL system and then look at the finishes. I am hoping that will tell the story fairly well.

Another interesting thing to observe, if you have the capabilities, would be current flow to the spindle motor without changing anything other than the endmill. If it is 110V, a kill-a-watt or something should work well enough.

In theory, the module I am using in LinuxCNC to control the VFD is supposed to be showing amperage draw of the spindle. I believe the load meter is completely inaccurate as I can not get the load over 5 amps, except at start up.

I believe I have an optical tachometer. I could attempt to see a out RPM drop during similar cuts. I don't think this will be super accurate either, but it may be better than relying on the Chinese VFD accurately reporting the load.
