drilling with endmills

Postby peeew3 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 8:56 am

So my team has been given access to a cnc shark hd4, and some WCP endmills were recommended.

Even though they are flat, can we still drill holes straight down with them even if we need to go a bit slower than a bit with a pointed tip?

West Coast Products.

Yes, you can drill with a flat end mill. VCarve has a "pecking" drill that allows you to pull out every so often, which aids in removing debris from the hole.
