    Just made an ali part with my new Ali Master cutters, using these compared to my 3 flute carbide cutters is like night and day.

    No clogging, cuts easier, faster feedrates and a better finish.

    If anyone is thinking of cutting ali on your router (yes Kip, cutting aluminium on your router!) then get some of these. Best 7.00 I have spent in ages.

    Well me owd kipster its bad news I'm afraid....

    Made a part yesterday out of 20mm alu/ali/ally plate and put a 38.1mm bore through it with a 6mm alue/allie/hally master cutter and it came out at 38.07. Measured it in 6 different places and yes its concentric (big word, had to check it on spellchecker). Was a bit pissed off though being 0.03 undersize so altered the cutter comp and put it right.

    Yes it was near the middle of the table but thats because it seemed the most sensible place to put it. Honestly don't think it would matter were it was on this machine.

    Could my router replace a machine tool...... No. I used to have a HAAS VF0 (little baby one) and that could do jobs like this in a quarter of the time but were's the fun in that..?
