Thanks Ger for the info on those cut speeds you always rock!! I am assuming that the RPM should be set fairly high? The hitachi does 8-24k and if I am going to cut hardwood what rpm for a 1/4" would you think I should use, and does HDPE plastic count as hard or softwood?
Oeffner O agree rapids are not important to me at least not as much as how much IPM in wood/plastic I can do and maintain accuracy.
Am I out of line thinking I can do 200ipm in hardwood with a 1/4" or 1/2" bit and maintain accuracy with that aluminum and stell beast I built?
Thanks for the brain share guys!
