Maker Bits Tool Library

This end mill database contains the recommended starting speeds and feeds for our end mills. Please note that this library is updated as soon as we add some new end mill types. To be notified when new end mill types have been added to the library, please sign up for our newsletter here.

Please note that this is used as a starting guide and as every kit has differences in rigidity, you may need to further fine-tune these settings to further optimise your CNC routing such as setting cut depth. Please use these libraries at your own risk. Errors and omissions excepted
