    Hi all,

    Just purchased a cnc router last month - my first forray into the world of cnc. I have a few years experience in wood working using the usual tools and equipment but this takes things to a different level. I'm sure there will be lots of tears and tantrums as I find my way about. First came across this website when I was doing general research into what type of machinery I should buy etc. You can't buy the amount of experience and knowledge that forums like this generate. I look forward your input at some stage in the future

    First question I do have - can I use fluted router bits on my cnc spindle? There is only ever mention of end mill bits

    cheers Steve

    Yes you can and they're a good choice to learn with as they can be very cheap.
    Old router build log here. New router build log here. Lathe build log here.

    Thanks Jonathan. Yes, bits can be quiet expensive.
