I need to cut some very specific sized holes 1" deep (going to use 1" machinable wax). Like diameter of 7.6 mm for example.
I would imagine that the "safest" way to do this would be a pocket cut. If one tried to cut it out side all the way through on an outside cut, the "plug" might foul the tool and break it correct?
I guess another way would be to drill them say 6mm on the drill press and then do an outside cut to size so that the material has clearance but I would very very carefully need to "find" those holes, almost would need to premark the centers keeping the piece in the vice all the way from nomad to drill press and back.
Any suggestions ? (I mill pcb's damn it!) so cam is new to me be gentle.
