Thread: Router costs (part 93 - Bits)
One of the areas that seems to be a bit thin on detail in the build and budget phase of hobby CNC routers is that of what constitutes a good selection of bits to start out with. Single flute, ball nose, engraver? what sizes, 2-8mm??
Any thoughts from those who have been there and got the T shirt as to a good selection to start with and how much to allocate to that part of the budget? I can't think of anything worse than having everything ready to make chips and then waiting for the right bit to arrive! lol.
Although some builders have a specific material in mind, others will be interested in machining a wide variety of materials so some general assumptions needed perhaps; 2.2kw water cooled spindle and if working alloy, wood, dorian, acrylic even PCB perhaps?
Any suggestions please?
Buy 100 of each type in each size then I'll buy some off you cheap. .
A good idea Jazz, but then I'll never get the thing built if I spend the budget on that! :-(
ok, let me change track on this.. Who are the ebay sellers worthy of note? was Supermario (or similar)one of them?
Yep i've used Super mario and been happy with him.
