Need some help, engraving for first time!

Hey all, I bought a V Bit with a 60 degree angle a while back (someone suggested it when i was looking into doing some engravings).

My first question is, what do I enter for the bit size? point length is 7/32 with a 1/4 cutting diameter.

Secondly, what cut setting perimeters would be suggested? I’m not 100% on the wood im using, but i know its some sort of pine and relatively soft.

Ya i’m using easle for my g codes and use Mach 3 as my running program.

Dang it, I was hoping if i was just smart with my parameters i would be able to do it.

Sweet, thanks phil! I’ll probably start looking into getting Vcarve.
