Do these sound like correct settings to use on 8.5mm plywood.
The plywood is advertised as hardwood, but it’s not as hard as stuff I’ve used previously.
I’m using a Masuter Pro with a Makita palm router as spindle, an 1/8” compression bit.
The job only involves cutting 8mm wide circles/holes all the way through the plywood.
There’s a lot of conflicting info online, and I’ve only got one compression bit, so I want to try and look after it.
These are the settings I’m about to use.
Bit: 1/8” Compression bit
Feed rate: 2000mm per minute
Plunge Rate: 1000mm per minute
Depth per pass: 4.7mm
Spindle Pass: 17500 rpm (Makita setting 3)
Is this a good staring point?
