Q: How can I get a finish pass on a Frame cycle?

A: Put in two separate Frame cycles: the first one should be undersize by twice your finish amount (or oversize, for External Frames); the second one should be to your desired final size.

Q: How can I mill a Pocket without cutting at the center?

A: Use the Frame cycle instead. See the preceding question regarding a finish pass. For circular pockets cutting all the way through the material, you can also use the Thread Mill cycle.
