Formulas:
TB = (FR x 12) / (RPM x NT)
TP = (DIA x PI) / NT
GR = TB x DC
SC = (TK x PT) / 2
GFI = (TB x DC) / GA
BF = 0.05 + (4 x TB)
MWF = (GA / TB) x 0.70
HF = SG x 2.20
RS = (DIA / 12) x PI x RPM

HP = GR x NT x RPM x BF x HF x KWF x FWF x 0.003
Glossary:
IN = Inches
FPM = Feet Per Minute
SQ IN = Square Inches
FPT = Feed Per Tooth
