I was hoping someone had some experience with cobalt chrome. We are
trying to achieve a 8 RMS finish. We are running part on a 5-axis
vertical machine. The part is approximately 1.25" dia x 1" long. Using
oil base coolant. The part geometry is cone shape. We are having some
success but cycle time is a killer. Looking for some recommendations:

2.Type and brand of ball mill
3.Speed and feed

Any advise would be appreciated.
