Cutting Copper?

Has anyone cut copper on the xcarve? I know you can cut aluminum and I know copper is pretty soft so just curious if anyone has done it.

I have carved copper. It’s possible.

Did you use similar settings as you would for aluminum?

What bit are you using?

I haven’t gotten one yet. Just trying to plan everything out so I have the best chance of success.

Thanks. I was just gonna use the 3in1 oil but I’ll use the stuff you recommended.

WD40 works well for me.

I carved a copper badge for my keepsake box Stuart's Projects. I didn’t use any cutting oil but it was a smallish cut with an upgraded Z Axis.
