So I need to cut some 3/4" plywood. I have tried a few test cuts with a 2 flute 1/4" end mill with ok results. I was wondering if I could get cleaner cuts with a 1/8" cutter. Has anyone done 3/4" deep cuts with an 1/8" cutter? (Obviously in multiple passes.)
Does anyone have a link to a 1/8" cutter that can cut that deep? In a little bit of searching it looks like 1/2" is the typical flute length. I have found some cutters with 1.25" flute length, but I would be concerned with deflection on those.
Would it be bad to cut 3/4" deep with a cutter that only has a flute length of .5"?
Thanks for any input.
