tapered endmills vs router v bits
« on: December 26, 2006, 09:50:38 PM »
Hello,
Im trying to find out if using tapered end mills would work for doing v-bin carving. Im in Mexico, and finding router bits for this aplication is difficult.
Any suggestions on what to use instead of router bits?
I was looking at some 60º burrs, rotary files, and even coutersinks

Regards
Fernando

Hey Fernando,
    I guess it would depend on what you are cutting, feeds and speeds. I have used counter sinks, and v-bits in my mill.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Im cutting solid surface (corian) and wood. I have one router v bit its a 90º 1/2" carbide, and i was cutting a pattern in that material at 50ipm 22,000rpm i think the depth of cut was between 1/8" and 1/4" cant remember.

Fernando

I don't know about the coreian but the counter sink worked pretty good on wood (Oak). A friend of mine does a lot of corian. I could ask him for a source for you if you would like.

Thanks for the offer Chaoticone, I have sources for the bits, but they are not local, I wanted to get rid of the hassle of having to buy them online and have them shipped international, pay customs, taxes etc...
I guess Ill give the countersink, files, and burs a try
I dont see why they shoudlnt work
