    I’m still waiting on parts, but I figured I would check and see what people are using their machines for and what bits they’ve had the best of luck with.

    Mcmaster-Carr is usually most reliable and most expensive when it comes to ordering anything, but I’ve found that MCM bits are about the same price as you can find most anywhere else. I recommend starting with the cheapest HSS (High Speed Steel), as your bound to break a couple when you’re getting started. Work your way up to more expensive solid carbide, and experiment with flute number, cut length, and overall length as you try different materials and feed/spindle speeds.
