Shapeoko mills brass like a champ

Hey all,

Cut some .09" thick brass parts on the XL, and it did a great job. These are antique cabinet hardware, re-purposed as guitar tailpieces (to hold the strings). I cut the string holes and slots. Small 0.0625" 2-flute carbide EM, 10IPM, 0.035" pass depth, dial 4 on the DeWalt 611(whatever speed that is).

I’m really happy with this and gonna start trying more metal cutting on the machine. It’s gonna be perfect for this kind of stuff.

Cheers!

Those look great, but your wife is going to wonder why the dresser looks so different.
