Is there a good calculator out there for determining the times it takes to face off steel on a lathe based on feed and speed and distance of travel and depth of cut?

Your insert providers can get you one. In the past these were slide calculators, I bet now they have electronic ones.

for inches it is (((major diameter - minor diameter) / (thousands of an inch of feed per revolution)) / (RPM)) = minutes per face pass.


The worst suggestion of your lifetime may be the catalyst to the grandest idea of the century, never let suggestions go unsaid nor fail to listen to them.
