#cnclathe #instamachinist #lathesgivemenightmares

Turning D2 Tool Steel on the ST-20Y! A friend needed some work done and fast, so we filmed the process. It gave us a chance to learn the machine and develop a workflow. We’ll cover the setup, how and why we used Excel, how to program CAM for ANY lathe part quickly in Fusion 360, how we measured the parts for quality control, and more.
