If you need a precision finish, you need a fly cutter. You just can't beat the incredible finish you get from a fly cutter
. Fly cutters were recognized as an invaluable tool in the machine shop
as far back as 1884. Sure, some CNC machinists use face mills for finishing;
but experienced machinists know that the secret weapon to for the smoothest aluminum finishing is a fly cutter with a diamond insert. It’s the first choice for a mirror finish.
One Pass Finishes with Fly Cutters
Make one pass for the finest finish over a large surface area. That is the fly cutter advantage. Even Ingersoll Rand recommends that their face mills be operated as fly cutters
for the finest finish. They even tell you how to modify their face mill. So, the obvious question is why should make a face mill act like a fly cutter when you should just use a fly cutter in the first place? For the right finish at the end, you must start right inn the beginning.
Using a Fly Cutter
Finishing is just one use of a fly cutter. Use a fly cutter to machine
an involute on a gear tooth or cut clearance notches in pistons. It's the perfect tool for the job. Need to make circular cuts and notches in metal? The fly cutter is the obvious choice. The only limit is your imagination. Need to mill an odd shape? Use a fly cutter.
