Machining 304 stainless steel is tricky! Although we've made past videos with good speeds, feeds, and strategies for drilling and adaptive machining, stainless came back to bite me a few months ago. Of all things, it was decking that threw me for a loop. After blowing a bunch of endmills and my lid, the job was done but I wanted to figure out a reliable recipe.
Speeds & feeds, workholding, and tooling are major components of building a recipe but there was another factor that was make or break and it's SO SIMPLE that you're going to think, "OF COURSE!"
There are 1000 ways to skin a cat but I'm happy with the results and if you struggle with 304 stainless, hopefully this can help!
