If you’re looking for speed to rough out your CNC router projects, the long 1/4 roughing endmill CNC router bit is the one you want!!. We call it the ‘HOG’ here at IDC Woodcraft because it literally is a hog when it comes to removing material mind-blowingly fast from your CNC woodworking project.
With a whopping 3/4″ depth of cut per pass, 80ipm plunge rate (yes, I said plunge rate), 80ipm feed rate, and 80% step-over, this bit kicks serious ass when it comes to getting material removed, so you can follow up with your finishing bit to finish your job off.
But it’s not just a time thing. Making the roughing endmill CNC router bit your workhorse for major material removal on your CNC woodworking projects, you save a ton of wear and tear from your regular up-cut, down-cut, or compression router bits. You’ll only use them to do the finishing work.
That alone extends the life of your bits significantly, saving you money for replacements. At $35-ish bucks a pop, the long 1/4 roughing endmill will 100% save you some cash. Especially when it comes to hardwood.
What is the long 1/4 roughing endmill bit good for?
- Guitar making
- Keepsake box making
- Cutting boards
- Bulky 3D carvings
- Table legs, like Victorian table legs or French table legs
- Other thick woodworking projects when you need to remove a lot of wood from hardwood
Plainly put, the up-cutting long 1/4 roughing endmill bit is the CNC bit to use when you need to remove massive amounts of material!
It’s not designed to make a pretty cut. It is designed for speed!
