I want to give thread milling a try from within Rhinocam for some Alum. parts I am designing.
I have been looking at some help and tutorial but I am a little unclear on feeds/speed as well as RPM.

I am also unsure if this tool will allow me to do what I want to do:
I am essentially looking to make M8 x1.25 threaded holes.
