Post by Alfonso Vargas » Sun Feb 03, 2013 10:29 am

Hi guys wanted to show my wax for a lone star pendant this is the top. hand making the bottom. Im still having trouble with the bit sizes, I see you'all talking about .50 and so on Ive been using a 10 degree single pass cut. Need help on procedure of using bits
This was done on the MDX Thanks Jeff. was pretty eas,y now need to learn to do better on the flips.

most all the time I use a 10 deg. 010 tapered ball end bit at full speed finish path (one pass cutting) ..If I'm cutting deeper then 5mm I'll slow it down a little maybe to 8-12 mps I don't worry about any other speed feed rates full throtle all the time is all you need with these bits they don't break.....anyway that's how I run my mill, may not be good for anyone else...
