This is what I’ve learned so far. The aluminum is 6061, which is desirable. WD40 is good. Slow speed and feed. I should check bit after each cut and replace or sharpen bad bits. Carbide is desirable. I looked at the following page:
You need to put “https:” in front.
I think I need to use the lowest speed on my router table (10,000rpm) with a mini bit, 1/8” and the feed is a maximum of 34 in/min provided I have 2 flutes and 17 in/min if one flute. I have a 1/8” into 1/4” adapter. I think it important to do the math regarding feed. For example, one cut is 35”. That will take one or two minutes depending on the flutes. I can use the chronograph on my watch to check my progress and maybe take a sharpie and divide the edge into 6 or 12 parts and keep up with the feed and for each 10 second interval, I’ll cut to another sharpie mark. Finally, I think I’ll try a downward feather board and focus on inward force against the fence and move right to left at a slow and uniform rate. And pray. Chris.
