MDF Sign Project


(Brent Halbersma) #1

Hey guys, I have a project I am starting tomorrow. I’ll be cutting out some letters for a sign out of 3/4” MDF. Does anyone have suggestions about endmill type along with feeds and speeds? Thanks!

Noob Alert!

In the file above, what does “DOC” mean?

Thanks!

Since I need 20 characters to post I’m writing this…

It means document :slight_smile:

DOC stands for Depth of Cut. This is how deep you are cutting in a single pass.

The community maintains a glossary which may help with such terminology:
