It is almost time for Halloween. Ghosts and goblins and zombies are scary. A CNC tool tray
is not. Or, at least it shouldn't be. Don't be afraid to use a CNC tool tray to protect your tooling.
The Value of a CNC Tool Tray
Tooling is expensive. Dropping your tools is a scary thought. Breaking tooling is horrifying. See, these are the things that should scare you. Buying and using a tool tray protects you. So do it!
A tool tray for the right taper size allows you to
- set up tooling sequence in advance
- safely transport tooling from storage
- store tooling safely at the machine
When you compare the cost of a damaged tool to the cost of a tool tray, the tray is a clear winner. There are other benefits as well, even if you don't machine with CNC. A small shop or hobbyist can be disorganized. Disorganization is not productive. You waste time looking for tools. Using a tool tray forces you to organize your shop, even on a small scale. Little dogs learn by watching big dogs
; and big dogs use a CNC tool tray to set up before they start.
Don't Let Flycutters Scare You Either
If you're vanquishing fears, don't let a flycutter
scare you either. Flycutters are wicked good for finishing. They cut large and shallow. You won't get the same finish if you try to use an end mill. But, for some reason green machinists fear flycutters. You've got to be careful when you machine. Period. A properly balanced and mounted flycutter is no more dangerous than any other tool. A homemade flybar is something to be feared. Fear a homemade flycutter. Don't fear a quality flycutter.
