Speeds & Feeds

Recommended Feeds & Speeds for Solid Carbide Router Bits       Use this chart as a starting point only. Feeds and speeds may vary due to machining limitations. This chart applies if the cutting depth is equal to the bit diameter. For cuts depth that is 2 times the bit diameter, reduce chip load by 25%. For cut depth that is 3 times the bit diameter, reduce the chip load by 50% Example 1: 1/2" spiral compression bit with a recommended chip load of .02; with a cutting depth of 1", the chip load should be .02 x .75( a 25% reduction)...
