Best bit for engraving


(Jeryl Beachy) #1

I have started engraving catch all trays that have made on my XL. I used a 60 degree bit to do that last engraving and was wondering if a 1/16 or 1/8 ball nose endmill would do a better job than the v bit? Looking for ideas on what you guys have used.

For engraving fine detail stuff, I’ve been using a 30 deg 1/4" bit from Drillman1 on Ebay https://www.ebay.ca/itm/30-degree-angle-x-1-4-carbide-bits-engraving-and-scoring-tool-2002-2500-030A1/381902236748?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Some projects done with it:

What software are you using for these, Stephen? Vcarve?

I’ve been using Vectric Aspire for my projects mostly, some CC, and been playing around with F-engrave.
