Testing some bits

just testing settings and some modified tooling. Ill post more when finished.
.125 20deg. carbide vbit reground to round over the tip. $5-7 for a 10 pack much cheaper that the tapered spiral bit and easy to find online.
finish pass running 125ipm


Finally done just need to make a stand or attach a piece for wall mount.


That looks great. I have yet to perform a 3d carving, how long did this one take and how many bit changes?

2 bits the rough pass was 16min the finish was at a unrealistic stepover of .001 and took about 15 hours.
Could have been done in around 4-6.
The 3d image is 6x10x.4

15 hrs!!! Damn, it is nice though - good job.
