I’m doing cutouts using .19" pine luan. I switched from an 1/8th to 1/16th inch end mill (feed: 30, plunge: 20, rpm 21000, depth per cut .28.
I’m having a couple of issues.
- During the cutting the machine is staggering/stuttering (that’s the best way I can describe it).
- Portions of the cut are burning
- The machine went off the original toolpath and cut a shape out about 4 inches to the left of where it had originally been programmed to do so.
I’m still new and learning so any advice on what I might be messing up would be appreciated. I did manage to do several cutouts with that bit on those settings successfully before suddenly running into this issue.
Thank you! -Aaron
