Default Re: Mill/Lathe

I agree... the bitr angle AND hight have a big influence on how smooth a cut is... With my old tool post if I used any cutter that wasn't exactly 5/16" it would cut aweful and I'd need to use shim stock to keep the cutter centered to the work. The angle is every bit as important, especially if using a wide cutter like I mentioned earlier.
