Key here is stage routing, independent of the cutter source.
Another point, cutters wear out fast. Typically, in 300', wear lines begin to show on the work.
What to do for perfect results? Waste 95% with your burning cutter, waste the last 5% with a new tool bit.
Second best shot, take 95% with your present cutter and last pass 5% cut with sasme tool.
If that burns , your cutter is dead.
Feed rate is important but not so much on the finish cut, essentially safe at any speed!
