That Discrepancy on the G02 Command

As I suspected the 1/4" end mill is actually  2215" diameter.   I will need to measure the mill diameter before writing the code.  This is enough of a nuisance that I will write a C program to generate the code for the future.

  1. .2215"? That's an 11.4% discrepancy! Utterly unacceptable in a tool. Even when cutting at the side of the tool - one would expect the tool to cut to 1/8" (0.125") from the position of the tool axis, but with this tool, the cut would be to 0.11075" out. One could compensate in the position of the tool axis - but one shouldn't have to.
