Shank Cutter Information

Shank Cutter Information:

 Milling Cutter Shank Diameters: They come in 3 different shank-types:
a) Threaded shank: The shank has a ‘threaded-end’ and all diameters have Whitform 20tpi (threads per inch)
b) Flatted shank: The shank does NOT have a threaded-end. It does have a ‘flatted-section’ on the shank
c) Plain shank: The shank does not have a ‘threaded-end’ and nor does it have a ‘flatted-section’ on the shankK

FORMULA
 The speeds shown are given in surface feet per minute (ft/min) or surface meters per minute (m/min), measured at the periphery of thedrill. To calculate thedrill revolutions per minute (RPM) from the surface speeds, the following formulae should be used, where D=diameter of drill

SFM  =  RPM x DIAMETER x 0.262

 RPM  =  (SFM x 3.82)   divided by    DIAMETER
 

CUTTING SPEEDS FOR HSS END MILLS & SLOT DRILLS

 The following feeds are recommended to be used in conjunction with the tables on the preceding pages, but these may need to be varied according to the local conditions of the job in hand. Insufficient feed will lead to excess wear at the lips and corners of the drill; too great a feed may cause the chisel edge to wear or the drill to break. In the case of work-hardening materials it is very important that the feed employed is both sufficient and positive. Power feed is advised.
