    Ill take that as a no then ;p

    In terms of Acceleration, how much would be considered good or 'too much'?

    Acceleration needs to be as high as it can take. Acceleration is more important than speed.

    Thanks. I had it set to 1500, then down to 750 which is too slow. The machine seems OK with it being 2000 which Ill try for a while and see.

    It is doable, however, the big question I'd ask is, how much effort is it going to be to swap between lathe and router?

    Understood. If the lathe tools / turrets are mounted to the right of the spindle, it could be as easy as just starting the correct Mach 3 profile, no other work needed.

    Have you ever checked out Cliffs Utube channel ? He does some cool stuff with gang tooling on his Tormach.

    So Ive finally gotten around to doing something 3D. Took Thor's hammer (Mjolnir) and then cut in half and milled it out. Looks like an anchor unfortunately.

    However .....

    1.5mm ballend mill, 24K RPM, 0.1mm stepover, scallop operation in Fusion 360, around 25 mins.

    Normal camera pic and then two high res macro pics to show warts and all. From the naked eye the part looks good. Polishing / Finishing will improve it even further.

    And this works exactly as the idea I came up with for Thor. I need to look at implementation and the ease of moving the 4th axis off (and remounting accurately).

    Yea I was going to suggest the RapidTurn unit to you as I also follow Cliffs channel, I would imagine your best bet would be to use some real hard stops you can then "bump" into for locating, as you say implementation on Thor is tricky because you dont want those fixtures to get in the way for other jobs.

    Thanks for taking the time to take and share the macro shots, its nice to see exactly what the finish is like from different machines.
