    first wedding plaque

    this will keep my out of mischief for a couple of days. this is for some friends of ours who are getting married on the 17th. they are already married in a civil ceremony, but doing it again in the church. after checking, he preferred the date of the civil ceremony.

    What are the estimated times? What feed rates are you using?

    here we go: i don't happen to have the big clearing bits, so i'm using a 1/8" dia flat bottomed milling bit for the clearing out of waste. the over all size that is being worked on is 7.25" x 19.25" (a fair amount of space). the top lettering milling will take about 7 hrs 20 min, at 50 in/min, the bottom lettering milling will take about 6 hrs 25 min, at 50 in/min. that is with 4 passes each, each finishing up at a 1/8" depth, with an over all finished depth for the bottom lettering at 1/4" deep. as beech is just a touch softer (and not by much) than red oak, i'm even thinking about dialing it back to 30-35 in/min.

    Any reason to not invest in a bigger bit for clearing out the pockets?

    Would a bigger bit reduce the total run time?

    Well, a tight budget for one. The wife wants me to hold off on any purchases for a while. That, and after adding the extra toolpaths, it only reduced the time by about ten minutes.
