There is something quite fantastic about being able to fabricate your own parts for a big project. I’ve got my Chilipeppr powered 6040 dialed in for this aluminum, and it cuts like butter.

That looks great what spindle? What wattage spindle? Any info on tools and feed/speed?

Those brackets look nice. What are you making? A gaming chair? Your chip size looks pretty good when cutting the aluminum, which means you got the feeds/speeds good.

@Brad_Hill it’s a 2.2kw Chinese spindle (20k rpm). I’m cutting with a 4mm end mill, at 500mm/min @9k rpm with a 0.6mm cutting depth per pass.

@jlauer yeah. Upgrading the frame of my sim racing motion rig. http://projectable.me/tag/sim-racing/

Great Job Daniel!

Can you say what Type of aluminum it is you are cutting?

@Andre_S its aluminum flat bar from Lowes. My guess is that it’s 6061

I did 7075 thats quite chattery with this small endmill (2flute 0,5€ from China)
