I have ordered an X-carve.
I am wondering what shank diameter the drills can have, is 1/4 also okay?
I want to get ball nose bits for carving organic shapes from HDPE.
Would these be okay? Will they fit on the X-Carve shank-wise?
Carbide Tip Upcut 2 Flute - 1/4 in Cutting x 1/4 in Shank
Carbide Tip Upcut 2 Flute - 1/8 in Cutting x 1/4 in Shank
Thank you very much!
The standard xcarve currently uses a makita router, which comes with a 1/4" collet.
So the bits you have listed there will work.
However There are also other size collets available and I reccomend purchasing the 1/8" collet and 1/8" shafted bits when possible, youll save a bunch of $ over buying smaller cutter sizes with 1/4" shafts.
