New V Shape Carving Bits


New V Shape Carving Bits
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar

I damaged my one good bit while making circuit boards earlier this week on the CNC. Fortunately zentoolworks quickly shipped a box of 10 replacement tips. You can see how I nipped the tip off the old bit on the left. The new bits are .15mm (about 6 thousandths of a inch) in diameter. I'm hoping these tips will give my circuit boards the fine traces they need.

How do you use the bits, and the CNC/mill I assume, to make traces in your boards? It may be perfectly obvious, but I've just always associated boards being made in an oven (like my dad did), or sourcing them out to a fab house.

Thanks,
Zach

Ah, sorry, just saw your Circuit Boards are Being Made Here! post. I'll investigate that!

Cheers,
