Yet another blockbuster from DB Studios. On the night shift, too - posted at 4.45am UK time!
Nice video, but don't kill yourself for our sakes, John.

Best description of the possible effects of climb milling I know is that it is like feeding wood into a table saw from the wrong side. The blade would pull the wood in and attempt to take huge chomps at it, with disastrous results. That said, even on my old Dore Westbury, I often take light finishing cuts that way. As the tool approaches the work, I push the table in its direction of travel, so the feedscrew slack is taken up and the first contact won't jerk the work forward.

I've cut the end off it twice, but it's still too short

It is easy to forget the effects of climb milling when you get in a hurry...

Late one night I was finishing up this piece by cutting a half round in the bottom using an end mill in a drill press.  Certainly not the cleverest setup I've come up with.

Interesting was to power feed a piece, I suppose...

(apologies for the huge pics in advance, but no time to resize at present)

I fixed them up for you. Hope that is OK.  Do
:D

Are you saying that one should never climb-mill?

Mosey

Generally speaking, if you don't have ball screws you should not be climb milling.  Leave it for the big CNC machines.  On any mill with significant backlash, you're just asking for trouble climb milling.

Of course there are always exceptions.  Sometimes a light climb-milling cut can get you a better finish on a hobby machine, but you need to be careful that it isn't trying to suck the workpiece into the cutter.  A bit of common sense goes a long way here, as does learning from your own mistakes.
