Hi @Sneakerzz ,
Take a look here (https://www.toolstoday.com/search?q=hdpe%20cnc%20bits&narrow=[["Material"%2C"Soft%20Plastic"]]&disable_semantics=1) - they have a useful filter selector for different bits by material type. You can then by from them, or elsewhere as you desire.
Also have a look here for a starter bit guide https://inventables.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/360032987173/Inventables_Color-Coded_Bit_Chart_-_Choose_the_right_CNC_milling_bit_for_your_project.pdf
do some testing to make sure the bit isn’t clogging or melting the plastic. I hear (but haven’t tried) that faster feed rates are better.
