It’s now been a week since I assembled my SO4 and I’m getting tired of drawing with it
Unfortunately my 1/4" collet for my Makita router is still en-route, so I can’t use the included #201 endmill.
I have a set of regular, cheap, 10-for-$10 router bits that I’ve used with my hand-held router, that fit the collet that came with the router.
So in order to finally start using the machine I thought of using a 6mm straight bit for cutting some MDF.
Does anyone know what settings I should use for that? I prefer speed over passes, if you have to choose between the two.
Carbide3d: I really wish the Precision Collets for Carbide Compact Router was included with the machine - also at an increased cost - in Europe. I understand these are compatible with the Makita router that we have to use here. The problem is that 1/8" collets aren’t available on the European market (at least I haven’t been able to find them) and 1/4" aren’t easy to find also. There are several months delivery time on your Precision Collets-set and almost every endmill I’ve looked at so far uses 1/8" or 1/4" shafts. It’s a real shame to have this nice machine sitting and all that’s stopping one from using it are some $25 collets Maybe something for consideration…
