I've had it for months but just tried my ARC Euro 3MT 25mm indexable face/endmill on a bit of old black bar.

Very impressed, cuts like butter and a lovely finish (usual disclaimers)


Starting to think that cemented carbide isn't that bad after all wink

I thought one of my sons might be inspired to purchase one of these for my birthday (given a suitable hint or two) but ARC are out of stock at the moment I'm afraid - so I'll have to think of something else.

Let me see....socks, underpants, a new tie? No - somehow they don't seem to appeal quite as much

And to add to my misery, I'd just got my vertical milling attachment (for the Atlas MF Mill) running nice & quietly after fitting new bearings and "ping" something nasty happened to the back-gear pin and it's not engaging. So a headstock strip down just to see the damage.... Double

A convert, careful, you will awaken the wrath of the HSS brigade.
