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.

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…
