Welcome to Bourbon with the Editor, hosted by Cutting Tool Engineering, featuring Vargus USA as our distinguished guest. Joining us are Joe Magee from Vargus and Dennis Spaeth, your host from CTE (Cutting Tool Engineering). This episode dives deep into Vargus’s latest triumph—the FS Line, an economical range of fully sintered inserts designed to revolutionize machining across diverse industries. Alongside our discussion on cutting-edge tooling innovations, we’ll also explore the finer things in life—like the exquisite Bourbon known as Blanton’s.

The FS Line boasts 62 essential profiles for both external and internal threading, ensuring unparalleled versatility across ISO Metric, American UN, Whitworth, NPT, BSPT, and API Round standards.

Key features include:

  • Versatility: Adaptable across multiple threading standards, indispensable for various machining needs.

  • Economical: Engineered for cost-effectiveness without compromising performance, ideal for widespread use across sectors.

  • Durability: Available in two robust grades—FSK (TiN coated) for steel and general applications, and FST (TiAlN coated) for stainless steel—ensuring enduring performance in challenging environments.

  • Compatibility: Designed to fit all standard thread turning holders, enhancing flexibility in machining operations.

  • Innovative Packaging: Featuring new 10-piece snap-off packaging for enhanced convenience in handling and storage, reflecting Vargus’s commitment to user-friendly solutions.

  • Advanced Tool Selection: Integrated into the VARGUS GENius™, the industry’s leading tool selector and CNC program generator, optimizing efficiency in tool selection and CNC programming.

Adding to the allure, we invite you to savor Blanton’s Bourbon—a refined choice known for its distinctive flavor profile, drawn from the heart of Kentucky’s Bourbon tradition. Renowned for its spicy character and rich complexity, Blanton’s Bourbon is the perfect complement to our discussion on precision and innovation in tooling technology.

This episode promises a captivating blend of engineering expertise and Bourbon appreciation, starting at 6 PM CDT on June 27th. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to explore the intersection of craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology with Vargus USA and Cutting Tool Engineering.

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • threading


    Process of both external (e.g., thread milling) and internal (e.g., tapping, thread milling) cutting, turning and rolling of threads into particular material. Standardized specifications are available to determine the desired results of the threading process. Numerous thread-series designations are written for specific applications. Threading often is performed on a lathe. Specifications such as thread height are critical in determining the strength of the threads. The material used is taken into consideration in determining the expected results of any particular application for that threaded piece. In external threading, a calculated depth is required as well as a particular angle to the cut. To perform internal threading, the exact diameter to bore the hole is critical before threading. The threads are distinguished from one another by the amount of tolerance and/or allowance that is specified. See turning.

  • turning


    Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
