First steps milling aluminium

Greetings,

First of all, a big hug to everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but I haven’t stopped checking the forum from time to time.

I’ve been meaning to try my hand at machining aluminium. Following some recommendations from the forum, I have managed to fine tune the settings with satisfactory results. And as it has made me very happy I share it with you, maybe someone will find it useful:

At first I was like, wow that is a big DOC/stepover/feedrate… then I saw the trochoidal settings. :wink:

can you mill bullet moulds or would the surface finish be hurt?

It’d give you a really good start. You’d need to sand a bit to smooth the mold out.
