I was asked to produce wood letters for a sign that are extra thick (1 1/2 to 2in). It looks like 2in would be stretching it because I measure 4in from the collet to the wasteboard but I could move the router slightly in the base. This would be for an outside sign will wood last or would this require PVC? PVC would cost more if I can find it and maybe put the project out of reach.
The other issue is that my endmills have a 1in flute length. Are there any recommendations for suitable endmills. Has anyone made parts this thick with a Shapeoko without the HDZ?
Does anyone have recommendations on how to proceed?
