I know this has been discussed many times before and I’ve been reading all I could fine but I’m still unsure on what bits to purchase for my soon to arrive Shapeoko 3. I’m new to CNC and all that it entails so I’ll explain my main purpose for using it. I plan on #1, drilling aluminum effects pedal enclosures to mount the switches, potentiometers etc. #2, engraving the labels such as “volume”, “gain” etc. and #3, putting some type of (very simple) art work on the enclosure. So what type and size of bits or should I say end mills do you fellas recommend? Also, I’m assuming I will most likely break a few do to inexperience so are there decent priced sets that work well? And back to the artwork and engraving. I would like to paint the engraving as well on some enclosures. The enclosures will have been already powder coated.
Thank you for any help you can give!
