I'm new to the game of cnc but Ive been using a manual mill for close to 30 years. When it comes to proper feeds and speeds for the shapeoko, Im still learning. Right now I run aluminum at 5in/min at about 15k cutting speed with a 1/8" carbide cutter. I take about .008" deep passes. Seems to work. I do have a super pid so I can slow it way down if needed.
