So newer machine, within 1 month so still very much learning.
Was attempting to make a catch all tray for myself this evening from a scrap piece of Wenge I had around the shop and was using my brand new 1-1/8" bowl bit. Speeds and feeds calculated as what came up in Carbide Create so not sure if those parameters are off at all but they are as follows:
Stepover - 0.563
Depth per pass - 0.050
Speeds & Feeds (per minute)
Plunge Rate - 8.0
Feed Rate - 10.0
Well… Everything was going great until my machine protested and on the 3rd bowl segment decided to smoke the router. What a mess and horrid smell! Purchased the Carbide 3D router offered on their website when I bought the machine.
I am currently in the process of contacting support but not likely to hear back for a day or so. Just looking for some guidance on things both in terms of the warranty process as well as the router bit. Was the diameter of the router bit too large for the router itself? I have seen a few videos on Youtube that have used large diameter bits like this so figured it would be ok.
