Topic tags/keywords: router cnc cnc bits

I have a Carve Wright CNC….total junk. But I have a complete set of bits. So here’s my question:

Can I use the bits in my router?

Will they tighten down in our router if so then why wouldn’t they work?

I use machining/milling bits all the time in my router, the main thing is to follow recommended feed rates so you clog up these bits with chips.

Since you are using bits designed for wood there should be no problems but I imagine the bits are for rather fine detail work and not hogging out large amounts of material (which of course means a slow feed rate).

Have your say...
