    Large Flycutter

    I made a large Flycutter for planing cylinder heads using 1/2" plate and a R8 stub made on the lathe. The cutter is 9 inches in diameter. I can mount an indicator on it to set up the work. I also made 2 insert holders for roughing and finishing inserts. I run it at about 120 rpm.
