Grizzly Mill
« on: September 04, 2013, 10:00:53 AM »
Last night, Mac needed to cut a slot in wood. I suggested using the Grizzly mill, only to find out the endmill in the machine was broken. When trying to remove the endmill, it became impossible to take out as the endmill was rammed way up into the collet. With a bigger hammer and some help from Mike, we were able to knock out the collet and remove the endmill. I had to lathe the drawbar and then chase the threads. After installing a new endmill, it worked great.


It had to take a lot of force to ram the endmill so far into the collet. If you find yourself using a lot of force/pressure on a tool, you might be doing something wrong and should ask for assistance.
