Wow!  That's a handy tool for the money, but their feed/speed calculations are crazy conservative!  They give numbers for carbide endmills that are less aggressive than what I normally use for HSS!  I would take the feed rates it calculates and multiply by at least 2 or 3!

Hi All

I made this one up using Excel (You can change it)

It may help you if you want to make one up for a specific machine

If your machine has fixed feed rates you can edit the sheet and enter them.
