Shallow Fast Cuts are Key

I cut AL on my router almost everyday. the trick is to take shallow Depth of Cuts (DOC) with high feed rates. Try using a 3 flute carbide, with 0.011 DOC, at 75 Inches per Minute, and a spindle speed of 12285. A few squirts of WD-40 at 2-3 minute intervals will be enough to provide lubrication and cooling.

cheers
