Default Good Bits

Hi guys.
Im fairly new to the CNC club, so still trying to learn lots and coming across alot of mistakes :-)

I own a crafts business and cut alot of MDF and birch plywood, ranging from 3mm to 18mm thick.

What bits would you all recommend for cutting?

I also engrave on hard woods, such as oak, and walnut, so what bits would you recommend for engraving?

The bits I have are cheap bits that came with my machine when i bought it a few months back. looked up some bits but find recommendation is always the best to go by, as shops just want your money

Try Onsrud (Onsrud cutter 2010). A few have said they are the best bits they've ever used.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
