I see recommendations to use a 1" Whiteside bit to surface an MDF wasteboard, perhaps that was on the ShapeOko. I also see someone being chastized for using a 3/4" bit on the Nomad. I have a Nomad on order and I’d ike to keep it in top order. Even without burning out the board it would seem larger diameter bits will put more stress on the spindle.
Is there a recommended method for surfacing wasteboards on the Nomad? Extensive passes with a 0.25" end mill? Run it through my drum sander and shim with metal tape? My biggest uses will be for fine line-enrgaving on flat stock so a truely flat Z will be a priorty.
