RELIEVING END OF SPIRAL END
bring end mill up very close to grinding wheel and
lock the grinder table. Next turn on the grinder
motor and slowly feed the grinding wheel into the
end of the cutter and at the same time, rotate
cutter in the work-head. This procedure will
relieve the end of the cutter and produce a
spherical relief with a radius nearly equal that of
the grinding wheel used to produce the radius.
General: A reamer is ground only on the end and not on
the outside diameter. If the outside diameter is ground,
the reamer will produce a smaller hole than before
