The staff @ Vortex are your best resource for the answer to your question. They've never steered me wrong.

It's all about chip loading and what type of material you're cutting.

The title of this forums may be a little misleading... I believe it was meant for the sharing of "Tool Profiles" defined within eCabinet Systems with the Profile Editor and not so much for actual tooling specifications, etc.

I suggest that you re-post your question over in the "Thermwood 3-Axis Machinery" forum. You will probably get more responses there.
