The scary/funny part is... This is *NOT* the worst injury I have simply super glued back together and continued to work... Drove a 1/8" diameter steel rod through my right hand, when a cutter spit it out at high velocity, and I had placed my hand in a stupid location. I also cut my left index finger to the bone with a razor knife while installing flexible wave guide connectors... Add a little industrial alcohol, and super glue closed... Return to work 5 minutes later.

I still believe that my right and left hands have it out for each other. I have to keep an eye on them, or they do stupid things, and I have to locate the First Aid kit

Ouch, reminds me of the time I learned you can't cut hemp twine with a bandsaw...

That sounds unpleasant and like a massive case of hemp rope burn.

This Sunday I am going to try out some new 3 flute DLC (diamond like coating) and some ZRN (zirconium nitride) coated end mills in aluminium. I also found my fog buster so I can clear chips. If all goes well, I *might* even get the homemade strip wall created and installed.

Pretty much, right on the nail head.

I got some ZrN coated 3-flutes for aluminum last year and the difference was better than I expected. Made me feel really dumb for relying on the cheapest endmills I could find for so long.

I've been considering some of the TiCN endmills too. Supposedly, they are really good for aluminium and brass. Any experience with this coating?

Btw, did the link I sent you about the slot cutter help your project?

Not with that coating, just with TiN before I knew it sucked for aluminum, uncoated HSS and carbide, and now the ZrN.

I ordered one of those and one I found on McMaster Carr that should work, just because I want one for a project that I need to try and wrap up a lot faster than it will arrive, but thank you greatly for the link.

I guess I will check out the TiCN coating. The endmills are the YG-1 3 flute endmills from a seller on Ebay. Not the best and certainly not the worst quality wise. They look to run $13 and some change delivered in quantities of 3 or more.

As to the link... I used that cutter to create a t slot. Figured since you had asked, I would pass on the info. It took a couple of tries and was "costly" in terms of useless tooling and wasted time :/

Twice Iíve filleted opened my finger deep and superglued it back together. Itís amazing stuff. The last time right in front of a coworker. He gasped while I calmly asked him to go grab some, then was shocked at how quickly it worked
