From your comment do i assume you are milling with the Y axis,

Steve.

That is a fair assumption. Using the power feed.

Sorry but my power feed is on the X axis. It was just you saying you push the work against the fixed jaw.

Sorry, Daddy brain.

Think about the cut pushing material outwards towards the fixed jaw.

I did see one article by Hass who said if the cutter is wide enough, do not run it central down the work. Slight offset gives a better cut. I do this now if the piece to be cut is narrower than the cutter, to allow such a cut.

Also when the trailing edge of the cutter comes along, does it show a arc on the work the opposite way. Meaning the cutter is touching at both ends.

Only from a amateur prospective of course.

Steve.

If the cutter is wider than the workpiece, cutting to one side should emulate conventional milling (avoiding climb milling on smaller machines), while cutting with It offset . As always, I suppose there are limits to how far the cutter should be offset, to avoid other issues...

When using the 63mm widax cutter i offset it strangely by the amount that it sounded right. + the cut was the cleanest. This was when the left side of a clockwise cut was about 10mm beyond the left side of the piece. & the right side had around 30mm overhang. It cut beautifully. As others have remarked on this forum that trial & error is the best way to achieve.

I have taken this premis on board & always listen to a cut. It works well.

steve.
