CNC Router – Need help with bits, feed speeds, etc?

Chris Fulton asked:


I have a newly built cnc router. Its built off of the HobbyCNC plans. It has a HobbyCNC controler (3 axis) with 305oz motors. The ‘router’ is a trim router that takes 1/4″ bits.

I’m looking for help with some guidelines regarding selecing the right bit, plunge rate and feed speed. I’m cutting some 1/2″ maple, but also want to cut and engrave acrylic.

Is there someplace that gives this type of info?
