Just playing with my Mini mill to get familiar, before I let myself loose on something with a purpose. Practising on Half inch flat stock, 1018 grade, using standard HSS , four flute endmill.
What is considered the most material one can safely cut in one pass. I'm going very cautiously at the moment in terms of depth and travel. Reason I'm asking I suppose, is why take 20 minutes, if it can been done in five !,
Big time novice with Mill, so hope it's not to much of a dumb question. Thanks.
