Which mills and router bits are best for cutting wood parts on a CNC? A handful of upcut, downcut, and compression bits are the best choices for digital woodworkers.In this series on mills and bits for digital woodworkers, I introduced the basics of end mill and router bit design.
If you missed it, here's the introduction and parts one, two and three.With the basics completed, it's time to focus on which mills work best for specific purposes.One of the best uses for a CNC is for cutting parts so, let's see what mills and bits work best for that.
Choosing a CNC mill is a lot like the choice you'd make when selecting a table saw blade for a special use (ripping, crosscut or a standard combination blade).There are various types of end mills for use in cutting out wood parts.
Two common mills are the upcut, for ejecting chips upwards where the bottom of the cut is smooth and the downcut, where waste is pushed down and top of the cut is smooth with no tear out.Then, there are compression cutters where both the top and bottom of the cut are smooth — which are great...
