The values below may be used in configuring milling operations when using a CAM program to generate G-code to make a cut, but unless your machine is essentially identical to the machine which they were used on, can be considered as only very general guidelines. Used in making glass molds. According to some machinists, Delrin must be allowed to rest for about 24 hours after initial machining, and then the last finish cut (0.001") to precise dimension can be taken. 0.125 in Your bit has 2 flutes. "... around 1 or 2 on the DWP611 speed and I feed about 750mm/min with a two-flute carbide end mill. If you get a lot of "chatter" (bit seems to hop) while milling uphill (where bit is turning into the material) you'll want to slow your job down slightly. October 2018 April 2019 This is the opposite of routing, in which we're cutting parts out of sheets, so most of the time we have no choice but to have 100% radial engagement (full width of the cutter is cutting).
