The "big iron" machines do not really have this issue. Our Morbidelli can get up to 1000 ipm in about 3" of travel.



1500+ ipm is the realm of super high production. Holding parts at those...

We have a 5x12 Mobidelli, and do commercial cabinets and millwork.

Yes, 95% of the sheets we cut are 4x8, but we do a lot of jobs where we need to cut 5x10's and 5x12's. Most of the time these are...

Downcuts and compression bits are what you'll use the most.
Try Yonico on Amazon for inexpensive "starter" bits.

With almost all solid carbide bits, tool diameter = shank diameter.


If you are using carbide tipped bits, then yes, go with a larger shank.
