CNC smashing a drill bit...

How to break a drill bit in 3 easy seconds!

It's not always roses in my shop, little things like this are a reminder I still have a lot to learn!

What I probably should have done was to do a chip breaking cycle by dwelling every so often, or done a full retract after a slight dwell.

This was the only #7 carbide drill I had, so after breaking it I had to bust out one of my standard drills. Got the job done in a painfully slow fashion... #cnc #instamachinist #machineshop #whatnottodo
