Awesome thanks, I was just planning on importing this into easel myself, but then figured I'd check if someone had already done so. I was just wondering what bit and feed/speed/plunge rates you were using?

Used a 1/16 bit end mill bit (or the smallest bit you have) at 70in/min feed, 9 in/min plunge, .2 inch depth per pass. You can crank the plunge much higher if you want, we have for other planes without a problem. Have fun cutting!

Thanks! Do you use the DeWalt router at 16000 RPM?
Jan De Wilde

Yes, I used the DeWalt router and ran it between 50%-100% speed. With my bit the lower RPMs were chewing up the foam board, so I would just experiment with your setup to figure out what works best.
