  • machining delrinacetal

    Nov 22, 2013 路 I have done a lot of machining on Delrin, and it is a great material to work with. As long as the cutters/inserts are sharp, Delrin machines like if it were a metal. Even though I have done a lot of work with Delrin, it always has been on the lathe or milling machine, but I have not gone higher than about 1300rpms with it.

  • Is it possible to use a drill press as a milling machine

    The biggest difference is speed. For instance most routers run 20k+ RPM, while a drill press might run between 600-3000 rpm. This is a HUGE Difference. A commercial milling machine might be able to handle 4000rpm or more, but does it with a mechanically moved milling bed, a vice and a 6-7hp motor. This has bad idea written all over it.

    Milling machines can weigh anywhere from 15 to 5,000+ pounds. A micro mill has capacities that are a fraction of those of a vertical mill, but regardless of physical size, accuracy is built on a rock-solid foundation.
