    I cut on a Imes 650 and do mostly full arch full contour I have a couple of the holders on backorder but I'm told they are months out. Does anyone have any experience milling with an open face holder? Are the results A drastic improvement to embrasure depth? I'm considering modifiying one of my existing holders but wanted a little feed back first.
    Thank You !

    And then....what?

    DMC hello

    If we change a fixture....then we also change the cad of that fixture the cam uses for collision detection. Advanced stuff.

    If we now have more freedom on one side or end or whatever you are talking about....them you may need to change max rotational limits set in cam and or the cnc controller as well.

    I made a fixture to hold half a 98mm disk.
    The other half is just hanging out there in space

    That's exactly what I'm talking about. Imes is working on them, I have a couple on order (months out) and I'm thinking about modifying one of my existing holders. I'm just wondering about the results . My re seller can help with the back end stuff. The goal is to get the mill to do some of the bench work I have to do green finishing.
