Re: Using Shapeoko 3 to drill 1/8 thick aluminum.

Reporting back I tried peck distance of .02" / .5mm with plunge rate 2IPM @ 8000 spindle RPM. My end mill broke at the second hole. I am considering increasing the spindle RPM.

I sent Winston Moy one of my kits to review, and he posted his findings earlier this week.

Re: Seeking: Non-conductive touch probe for auto leveling -
