Running this on my 500watt dc spindle. Only taking a .1 mm depth of cut though. Forget what the feed rate was. Spindle is just a tad out, I can feel the step overs, but not by much, and with smaller bits, I never notice. I’ll even it up better after MRRF since I’m pulling it off for show and tell.March 21, 2018 at 7:02 pm #55913
Oh man, that is like magic watching it disappear out from under the bit like that. Do you have a link for which bit you are using? I have looked at a few but never can quite get myself to pull the trigger.March 21, 2018 at 10:16 pm #55935
Impressive! Super perpendicular and you have a solid build to swing a 1″ bit. So nice.March 22, 2018 at 4:40 am #55953
Pretty sure it’s this guy right here.March 22, 2018 at 6:22 am #55956
I bought a 3/4″ end mill to face mine, but haven’t had a chance to run it yet. My spoilboard is larger than my cut size, so when I finish, I’ll still have a bump up along the edges. I’m thinking I’ll just take a belt sander and chamfer those edges down.March 22, 2018 at 7:19 am #55961
I stuck a 3/4″ router bit that I had into the spindle and just manually ran it all over the usable surface, so yeah, if it fits it’ll work. I removed about 2mm. Things are square to the machine even though the table is all wavy.March 22, 2018 at 9:13 am #55969I bought a 3/4″ end mill to face mine, but haven’t had a chance to run it yet.

Mine leaves spots at the corners, and a thin strip down one side because I didn’t get the spoil board centered. I used a sharp chisel to pare down those spots. A small hand plane would work too.
