Looking for angles on single lip cutters
« on: September 25, 2011, 01:01:32 PM »
OK, I finally purchased a cutter grinder. I think the instructions were translated from japaneese to chineese to english. What I'm trying to figure out are the actual angles of a single lip cutter. I primarily use 30deg cutters with .005 tips. What I'd like to know specifically is the angle of the tip itself and the clearance or back angle of the cutter. Any info is certainly appreciated! Thanks, Mike

Definately good info. I'm looking for specific numbers though.
