I am currently running a 1000mm X-Carve with almost no modifications. Dewalt “spindle” set to 1 with a feed rate of 15in/min .25mm DOC. I have significantly better quality when I use cutting fluid. However all the research I find suggests I do not need it. I prefer not to use it as it makes cleanup more difficult. The aluminum is 1/16x1 from home depot. Still very much a noob and just started working with aluminum. Any tips and tricks would be great!
