I just orderd a KT-2514 from K2 with 280oz/in steppers, PC892 router, the dust collector and height-finder, Rhino, Visual Mill, and mach.
I'll be cutting aluminium, fibreglass, carbon fiber, and circuit boards.
I have some end mills coming with the machine and I'm shopping for some V-bits and super-small end mills for isolation milling of PCBs. Don't know what kind of bits to get for the fiberglass or carbon fiber yet.
What else should go out in buy in preparation for first use? I imagine some dry release spray on lubricant, some sort of hold downs (t-slot table)... Anything else that I haven't thought of that you folks suggest?
being one, am not sure, does one need a vacc pump to hold down awkward/thin stuff? If so where / $$ / vacc required in "/Hg?
got a link for K2? - Am looking for Al / steel T-slotted bed.
