I realized after I watched the video that the bit wasn't stopped when I swept away the hair. Whoops. Do not try this at home kids. On all the others I made sure the bit was stopped, I guess I'm...

I did a pocketed cut in the jig so the vacuum would be pulled thru that pocket thru the spoilboard. I masked and taped off all of the area around it so I could get concentrated suction.

1. The spindle is very very quite. It's the wrong bits, feeds, and speeds when cutting that makes loud noises.
2. I would suggest moving before you buy a CNC because the drug lord may come take...

50-150 ipm is WAY too slow for those rpms (10k-16k). Try 12000rpm at 240-300ipm full depth pass. A screaming bit wants to be fed (use slower rpms or faster feed rate).
