New purchaser considering bits


(Burt Abreu) #1

Hey. I’m looking to purchase the Nomad and will initially be making unit type signs (like the numbers over storage facility doors) in 2 ply plastic (i.e. white/black so when you cut numbers show black on white background) and aluminum plates. I’m looking at all those end bits and have no clue which ones and how often they break etc.

In addition to the sign work I will be trying my hand at small detail wood working like doors for miniature dollhouses, custom dominoes and the like.

If anyone can give me a reasonable sense of what I need to start out with this work I’d appreciate it.

You’ll want some more and smaller endmills.
