Hi All.

Considering this was my mess I probably am disqualified from guessing but I will share some info that might help narrow things down a little.

I used a 2 flute high helix solid carbide end-mill.
The spindle speed was 5700 rpm.
The cut speed average was 24 ipm.
The stock started out at 2" x 2" x 3.5" - 6061 about 70% was removed.
The rough down was .250 depth of cut with .1 step over.
This was the 8th part cut that day.
It was 95 degrees in the shop.
The mill was controlled with a Grex and Mach.
I was wearing shorts and was probably drinking beer by then.
It filled a 20 gallon shop vac bag about 3/4 the way up. And it took me many hours to clean the mill.

Hope that helps!!

Oh and here is another pic that will make it easier to count the chips on the floor ;)

Chad

Chad,

What is the diameter of the 20 gallon vacuum?

I might have to recalculate my formula.

If someone pays me $550 bucks I'll tell them how many chips there are.

My guess is 2,369,148 - but as with most things these days, according to my wife, I've probably got it wrong again!

Hi Guys

I just removed a virus file that was named A0093027.exe.  I haven't had a virus in a long time so it must be a sign.  I'm going to win!  I'm sure of it!  I hope I win.  If I don't win I'll never own a G-Rex.  1 in a million chance.  Hmmm, pretty long odds.  Wonder if I can haggle Benny down to 20 bucks for the answer.  I've spent way too much money on hobby CNC and I've been put on wifey credit hold so this is my only hope.  Please god please!!!

I'll go with 2,093,027

Cheers

Derek
