Morning. Brand new machine, brand new user. I’ve read so many threads here but the old questions have outdated links and the new questions seem to go unanswered. I have a lot to learn and for every answer I have another question so I’m just looking a a few recommendations or links to push me in the right direction while I keep reading and learning.
I would like to cut through 2x6 pine wood. It’s roughly 1.5" thick. I don’t need a beautiful cut just quick and dirty all the way through. Can someone link me a few bit recommendations and/or settings so I have a good start to my next screw up?
You want an upcut, probably 2-flute, with a 1.5" cut height. Check ToolsToday as well.
That said, you can get away with a shorter cut height as long as the shank is the same diameter or smaller than the cut. Just make sure your collet doesn’t rub on the workpiece.
