    GWizard is your new friend:

    It depends on the cutter diameter as clearly smaller cutters will deflect/snap if you use too high a chipload. As a rough guide:

    12mm cutter 0.4mm chip
    6mm cutter 0.3mm chip
    3mm cutter 0.25mm chip (maybe less)

    12mm cutter 0.42mm chip
    6mm cutter 0.35mm chip
    3mm cutter 0.3mm chip (maybe less)

    (Can give more examples if required)

    In reality you may end up using a fair bit less than these values as the machine may not be able to achieve these feedrates.
