I have so many questions I don't know where to start! But, as Mary Poppins would say "start at the very beginning, that's a very good place to start". Feeds and speeds. Following a couple of you tubers and one of them was kind enough to give away a chart of his feeds and speeds for subscribing to his channel. We both had the same CNC and router, Bob's cnc with Makita router. His chart was designed for hardwoods. As a newbie to this craft, I am using softwoods, pine and birch plywood. He has lead me to believe that I will be able to increase the feed because of the material I am using. Is there a rule of thumb or is it trial and error on just how much I can increase the feed. And also, if I increase the feed, how does that affect my router speed? Will that need to be adjusted as well. Right now with the tables that I have I am getting mostly powder when I carve, when I believe I should be getting chips (no coke) Please excuse my dry attempt at humor , and any help would be greatly appreciated.
