    Default Steps in parts

    I am cutting an OD on a piece of stock about 6inches long and about 1.5 diameter. The problem I am having is I can't make a straight smooth cut. There seems to be an occasional step. I've tried many different inserts and speeds and feeds still have problem

    Make sure backlash is not to high or over comped. If overcomped this will often causes steps when cutting OD on parts

    Try leaving more for a final pass......take larger cuts and increase feed.
    leave about .02 on the diam. for final pass....Also try starting your cut
    closest to chuck towards z0.0....for the final pass
