Hello all, first time poster. I just got my CNC router and was making some cuts in 3/4" Russian birch ply using a 3/16 upcut spiral but even though its an upcut bit Im getting the chips densely packed in the cut. Im following the Amana speeds and feeds 18k RPM, 150ipm, with a cut depth of 1x the diameter of the bit. Since this is my first time Im not sure if this is usual or if I should be trying to adjust the speeds and feeds and if so which way up or down. I have no issue with the cuts but dont want to be prematurely wearing out the bit either. I havent had any breakage yet but the chips cant be helping. I would expect this with a down cut but with a upcut it somewhat surprises me. I am using a 3hp laguna cyclone so Its not a dust collection issue. When the part is done I have to use a pick to loosen up the chips left in the cut. I havent tried a bigger diameter bit so Im not sure if this is just a small bit issue or if Im doing something wrong.
