    so i was finally able to convince my boss to buy a compression bit, its a whiteside solid carbide compression bit, 1/4 cut 1/4 shank, can compression bits be plunged into the cut like the other bits, i have seen other posts about ramping into the cut and im wondering if that is something i have to worry about with a compression bit, i would like to avoid any potential failures if possible as this is my first time using a compression bit

    You shouldn't plunge with any bits, and I wouldn't recommend it, but yes, you can if you want to.

    ok ill have to practice ramping in (if you have any tips for ramping i think you can tell im pretty new to these machines), everything i cut is either prepared for me in our digital department or i create a file in coreldraw x7, but i was under the impression that plunging into a cut wasnt bad for the bit as long as the material doesnt exceed the max material thickness of the bit
