Cutting Aluminum

Last weekend, I tried to cut an aluminum sheet 2mm thickness. This was my first test with CNC to cut aluminum, as I used to cut carbon sheet and fiberglass mainly .

Result is good so far, next trial will be with a 4mm sheet. It needs to add some oil spraying during the milling.

My settings:
- drillMill: 1 tooth, M2x8
- cutting speed of the Kress: between 5 and 6 (RPM?)
- cut advance: 200mm/sec
- layer: 0.2mm
