Just wondering what others are running their machines at? I have a lc4896 with the 5hp HSD spindle and vacuum holddown. Cutting 3/4 veneer core ply with a 3/8 compresion spiral Im currently running 275 IPM @ 15000 RPM. The results have been satisfactory, wondering if there is room for improvement.
I run a much bigger machine, with bigger spindle, but using the same tool, I cut at 700 ipm @ 16,000 rpm.
