    Hi,

    I'm relatively new to the forum and posted just a couple of times.

    I've just bought a Boxford CNC router for the batch production of small hardwood items.

    I'm sure this has already been discussed, but can anyone with experience of the fine finishing of hardwoods recommend a good source for tooling.

    Would I be better using a 10mm or bigger shank,rather than a 6mm? I've told that this will lessen vibration and some noise.

    Any tips as to how to get a good finish would be much appreciated. Also any thoughts on a good source of information on the subject, online or books.

    Many thanks,

    Bob

  2. Hi, tools for hardwood routing, solid carbide spiral tools are widely used, but PCD diamond bits get a much better performance.

    Hi Ricocnc,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Some solid carbide I have and I'll see how they go. The diamond PCD are a new to me, I'll check them out.

    All the best,
    Bob
