Cutting Stainless Steel capabilities

@ApolloCrowe cut a hole in some stainless to test the bamboo clamps: Bamboo Work Clamps made with Carbide Create. He also cut a stainless version of the titanium frog, but I think that was on a Nomad.

The feeds and speeds chart says slow and shallow with coolant: http://carbide3d.com/shapeoko/feedandspeed/

Kicker will be providing coolant on long and large jobs. For small parts you could use the hot glue to contain a puddle method. For larger space, you may want to rig up a mister or drip system, but then getting MDF wet doesn’t help it stay level.
