Yeah Iím just better off spending the $110 (I believe itís $110 last time I looked it up) of the whole assembly with the knobs for the fan speed and selection and dual zone vs taking it apart thanks for the info tho!

Gator1 I was at a trade show 20 years ago now, and they had this 5 axis machine making dice two at a time touching end to end tip to tip without ever moving the part. Mesmerizing....and I can only imagine what they have now!

Broncowilly At Pac-Nor barreling we had a Haas five axis. Talk about an amazing machine!

Do you have the dual climate control on your truck? If so how did you replace them cause when I did a quick search to fix mine it said I need to order the whole controller with new knobs and stuff

Yes mine stopped it. Now it's silent on shut down. Not that the chirp bothered me. I just run green backs on everything I can cause it's a lot stronger and thicker belt.

TWR hi stainless is not bad to cut but you must have the speeds and feeds and depth of cut correct or it can be hard on cutters. I try to use insert cutters most of the time as the cutter wears i can just change the insert, i don't have to buy new or regrind. I use a solid carbide end mill for the last .020 so the end mill will last much longer.

OK, the reason I asked is two places I worked did some stainless work, and it was always very hard on the tooling esp the stuff that was half hard or full hard they called it. I just remember it being hard to drill and use a counter sink on it even... it was tough to machine. So I was wondering if you used solid carbide end mills.
