I need to put your big brains to work out there. I have a question to pose.
Ian Morton pointed out that there is now programming/design software that enables the inherent unbalance of spiral fluted endmills to be corrected in the grind by removing mass using the wheel washout. Haimer uses this.
Let's assume that the retention knob on steep taper tools could also be balanced with the right fixture, though I don't know if anyone does this (not an issue with HSK) and that the toolholder has been balanced by removing mass with drilled holes. Here's my question (maybe two):
If I have three (or two) balanced components is the final assembly then balanced?
Or, will the orientation of the components in relation to where each had mass removed to balance them make a difference?
