DoESLiverpool somebody should wiki is down #1024
Some server error at github's end that only affects our wiki. Hope they fix it.
Was intending to add this text to the Tool crib page:
Tools are expensive and easy to lose track of. Please number then and record their history as they get used here.
Record who bought them, for how much, where from, catalogue number and any feeds and speeds information provided by the supplier. We want to make sure that when we find a tool we like, we can get it again.
Collets: We have five: 8mm, 6mm, 1/4inch (easily confused), 3mm, 1/8inch=3.175mm (easily confused). You must use the correct collet size and tighten it firmly. DO NOT USE IMPERIAL COLLETS ON METRIC SHAFTS -- even though there is only 5% difference in size, it will jam.
T7 5mm Flat

2 blade, table flattening, 3/4" cut diameter, 1/4" collet
Case of V-grooved cutters, 1/8" collet, 30 degrees (one unused) for copper or brass.
Case of nearly flat drill bits, 1/8" collet, various diameters for drilling holes in circuit boards.
Case of ball-nose cutters, 1/8" collet and diameter, probably for brass.
Feeds and speeds
my calculations here a 2-fluke 5mm Carbide tool should cut aluminium at 1577mm/minute with the spindle set at 15524rpm, and a 3mm 1-fluke Carbide tool should cut it at 1314mm.minute with spindle 25874.
T1 4mm Flat
