Where are you getting your 1/16" 7 Deg tapered ball nose bits? Thanks!

Oh, and about how long is your finish pass taking to complete? With my 1/8 it took about 3 hours, I just recalculated and it's 10hrs!

Swaped out to a 1/16" TBN, 70ipm, 8% step-over.....we'll see what this produces after it has time to run for a while.
I'm assuming rapids and inches per minute are the same thing. For the tool settings, I have it set to 50ipm. In Mach3, I bump it up to 70ipm and it still seems to be smooth.
