Just added a CNC to the shop. First project honors one of my other passions…

Just a standard 1/2” V-bit… First attempt, evidently many more bits to buy…

Here’s a suggestion from a fellow CNC’er

Invest in a GOOD 60 degree V-Bit – you won’t regret it. The difference in detail will amaze you!

Surprisingly, there not too expensive either!

Here’s one I swear by: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001A0EW0S/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have WELL over a hundred hours of use in hardwoods (mostly Ash) and it still cuts like brand new.

Good luck!

I’ll buy one tomorrow! Any other suggestions? Other than the plastic snipe of course :-)

Thanks! I’ve been told by KnotCurser that it only gets better with the correct bit… :-)
I went with the Anniversary Edition Shark. Best fit for my shop… I lusted for a couple of years as we sold our home, moved to TX and rebuilt.
So far, I really like it…
