I’m making an 8x8 1/2" aluminum tslot board for my Nomad and I need a tslot cutter to handle the job. Does anyone know of a tslot cutter with a 1/4" shank? I seem to only find 1/2" shanks. The slot needs to be 5/16" wide.
Also, any thoughts on if the Nomad can handle this cutting. The aluminum is 1/2" thick. I cut the grooves/channels without a problem. Tried using a 5/16" routing bit for the slots and even at extremely slow feeds/speeds it locked up.I made a complete board in MDF but want to make an aluminum one and add mdf strips to the top.
