    Sounds interesting. They just drilled two new wells for the new systems going in up the road from me. Last year was scary dry, acres of crops were tilled under due to lack of rain.

    Now they can suck the wells dry.

    We just use an RMR roughing cutter for all our tube notching needs on our Bridgeport style mill.
    As Sprintcar repairs are one of our main sources of work we do lots of tube notching and as the pics below show we tilt the tube in the vice.
    This is done solely for speed of manufacture, ideally tilting the machine head is the best option but when your using the machine to make money, then time saved is money saved.
    There isn't a faster method of coping tubes we've found and it allows easy reworking of the notch if you get the notch slightly out of alignment and need to rotate it in the vice.
    We've been doing this a long time and the system of tube to machine orientation works for us but it may not suit others.
