Ball nose mills make a rounded pass which works for 3D work. Fish tails make a flat surface and v-carving mills produce a V shaped pass, obviously. This Continue reading

In a 2011 American Psychological Association report entitled Measuring Gratitude in Youth: Assessing the Psychometric Properties of Adult Gratitude Scales in Children and Adolescents, a group of authors report that real generosity and gratitude can be measured by looking at four different aspects: intensity, frequency, density, and span. This report indicated that when children give out of real generosity they relive the feelings of giving several times throughout a day for several days. They do not need rewards or recognition.
