Cutting Thin Slots | The HobbyMachinist

Cutting Thin Slots | The HobbyMachinist

 · I was wondering what the best machine and setup would be to cut a thin slot, .020", about 1/4" to 3/8" deep, into brass bar, maybe 10"14" in length. I was thinking a slot saw blade or a micro drill bit. Would a horizontal mill or vertical mill be better? From what I have gathered it seems like a vertical mill is more versatile.

Feed Rate Calculator

Feed Rate Calculator

When milling or drilling, or creating a tool path for a CNC machine the feed rate must be determined. Materials have rated surface speeds for a given type of cutter. The harder the material the slower the speed. Given the diameter of the tool and the surface speed, the RPMs of the spindle can be calculated.
