I’m new to this forum and I’m looking for a machine to engrave a 1″ wide logo on hot rolled/carbon steel using MPCNC. Would this be do-able? I’m not looking to go deep into the steel. Also, if it works whats the finest bit I can use?
Also, which bundle or parts would you recommend?

If you make a really small and short build you might stand a chance, steel is really an advanced project. Have a look at a few of our steel videos and see if that clears anything up.August 22, 2019 at 9:03 pm #110507
engraving with a vbit is much easier than slotting/pocketing. I would try a 90 degree bit and maybe a 60, but 90 would be really strong.
you can also try a diamond drag bit to etch your parts.August 23, 2019 at 5:57 am #110531
Thanks. These bits would both be using the Dewalt DW660?
Also, Which control board would I need for this?August 24, 2019 at 6:20 am #110610

Looking to engrave mild steel. Nothing too deep.August 24, 2019 at 5:10 pm #110673
Any controller will move the machine. I just wasn’t sure if you were talking about the movement of the whole machine, or spindle control.August 25, 2019 at 6:22 am #110715
If I wanted to do just drag bit engraving would I just need the drag knife adapter?August 25, 2019 at 10:42 am #110746
I don’t think so. They don’t care about direction as much as a blade.August 25, 2019 at 4:05 pm #110779
Which tool mount should I order if I’m using a diamond drag engraver?August 25, 2019 at 5:46 pm #110785
None. They usually have a 1/4 shank and you put that in your router. You run it without turning on the router.
