I am wanting to do a profile cut in Oak using a 6mm 2f HS cutter full slot. I would like an idea of the speed & feed, DOC, rpm etc. The Oak is 20mm thick. It will be cutting long grain and end grain.

i find that oak splits easily if you use upcut, make sure you on a down cut (climb or conventional milling)

feeds , i take it easy to avoid splinters

3mm DOC, 3000mm feed , 12k rpm
