What's a reasonably small text that can be done? I've tried 1/4 inch text, 1/4inch 60 and 90 degree and 1/2 in 90.looks perfect on first pass,then goes back over and ruins it. I kinda like the straight cut look from the first pass.

Go to a 30 or 60 degree bit but don't use the ones with the big ends. Stick with the shaft size. I use a 60 degree more than anything and don't cut deeper than .12 inches.

Also remember, the smaller the text the bigger chance for tear out. Time for a laser too!!!

Make sure your table is level & flat.

Make sure you are using an engraving 60° or 30°

As said above, make sure the lettering isnt going too deep. Keep it around .1
