Im working on a project and I’m hoping some of the experts here can help walk me through some of my troubles.
Basically, I am carving out a map of the coast line with on a piece of wood that is about 20"x 24". Approximately 40% of the piece map is water with the rest being the detail of the coast. My problem is, carving out 30% ocean (.5" deep) with a 1/4" bit is going to take about 20 hours, which is way too long. In looking at the cut settings, it looks like the depth per pass is defaulted at 0.028in, which is what’s driving the time up so high. Does anyone have any suggestions on how far I should be able to comfortably be increase this?
