Re: I cut a record or 2 LOL

I used a regular spiral bit but it was a down cut (vinyl was pushed into bottom of cut) so a reg spiral bit -up cut would be best.

Re: I cut a record or 2 LOL

The sticking was because of the hot vinyl being forced below the record- I was using a down cut 1/8'' end mill. I think if i was using regular, up cut bit it would of been fine..... I was forcing the fresh cut hot vinyl under record and into the slight groove of cut tool path. the paper I added unde...

Re: 3d finish tool

3 d cutting path will make many passes to get fine detail- usually a tapered ball tip bit can not cut very deep on each pass...I am sure other will chirp in to. good luck- also it is better to use the larger bit first to get the bulk on the wood gone BEFORE the fine finishing bit- tool path runs.
