Feeds & Speeds for 30deg vbit

Here’s what I’ve been using for a similar Amana:

And here’s what I used for a single flute 25° vbit in bamboo (very conservative depth per pass)

RPM to feedrate ratio quite consistent with Will’s.


Thanks @Julien and @WillAdams for the quick response as always. As soon as I saw the first post by Will, I tried to translate that into Vcarve settings, and ended up with the following Feeds & Speeds. It worked beautifully on Maple and Purpleheart, and is definitely over-conservative.

Pasting a screenshot here so others can see this when they have the same question
