But we won’t know until someone tries it.
And my curiosity wants someone to try it!
When I first started reading on this forum, there came through a common understanding about how things such as Z height impacted cutting, and the impact of mass at the core. The longer I follow this forum, the less certain I am about this common “wisdom.”
For example, on Z height, I ran across this video of a Burly.
Look at the height of this machine, and I guess he is happily cutting guitar bodies.
Or take a look at Steve’s water cooled, 2.2KW spindle here. That spindle has to weigh a ton, and according to his later posts, he is getting great speed out of his machine. He is using some special electronics to achieve those speeds, but he is making it work.
Never rule against one of these machines even with experimental features.
I expect we don’t often see the failure machines on this forum. People are more motivated to post their successes than their failures.
There are no apples to apples comparison of the impacts of things like XY working area, Z height, and core mass.
