Recommendation for an spindle that can cut 3" foam

Post by tartavull » Tue Feb 11, 2020 3:33 am

Hey Community,

I'm looking to mill some 3" thick foam sheets. I bought some long mill but it make the the router vibrate excessively.
Is there any spindle that can handle this longer bits and can be fit on a shapeoko?

With a good quality endmill this shouldn't be an issue.

Tried something esp. intended for foam such as:

Amana Tool - 46270 Solid Carbide CNC Foam Cutting Up-Cut Square End Spiral 1/8 Dia x 1-1/8
Shapeoko 3XL #0006 w/ Carbide Compact Router w/0.125″ and ¼″ Carbide 3D precision collets
