yes. And i use engine paint because it dries fast and makes a thick hard coating that is harder to sand off for certain effects. So far VHT has been the best brand for me I can apply 3 coats in 10 minutes and be ready to cut in about half an hour.
Yeah oops on my part was just looking for a photo of the type of bit i used. By the way I use them for milling aluminium to easy to resharpen to. They do chatter a bit more cutting metal but the metal does not bind up in the bit either like some milling bits
Each to their own but i use them for just about everything soft metals, plastic, wood. My take on it they were made to be used in a high speed cutting tool unlike the milling bits we use on the xcarve. Dont get me wrong I do use milling bits to but the 2 flute router bit is my go to bit in most cases. And on the plus side they are pretty common and easy to find at local hardware stores
