I have a 1.5Kw spindle with max 7mm shank but 1/4" shank is most common. Can someone recommend an endmill that I can run over my table to smooth it out please? I will take a 1mm - 2mm cut out of MDF

My table is approx 1650mm x 1300mm

I have looked on ebay but really dont know which one to pick.

Looking forward to some advice please from my experienced CNC friends.

Best Regards
Boyd

I would go with something like these. There is no point spending nearly $200 on a bit you will use only now and then. These I have linked will just take a bit longer.
