V Carve / Engraving Feeds and Speeds

Using .25 dia 60 V Bit with .01" tip. Cutting in hard maple. I can get the bit to engrave nicely but how do I know when I have the speeds, feeds, step over, … set for the bits optimum performance?

Is really hard to “know” with these machines. If you ask ten different X-carve owners, you’ll get sixteen different answers on feeds, speeds and DOCs.

That’s all you want. Try faster.
