I have moved and just got my MPCNC set back up. I havent printed yet just jogged the machine around some. Before I start printing though I would like to surface the spoilboard so it’s parallel to the print head. You can see my setup here https://goo.gl/photos/NoN3S24TkqsHsSki8 the pictures at the bottom are the most recent. After I surface it flat, I would then like to mill out at pocket to insert a mirror or piece of glass. I don’t have the dimensions yet but I’m going to head down to lowes in a bit to look for a 19x19 mirror or smaller. I have a 495mm by 495mm build volume. The idea is to set it up in a way that I can print multiple things on the mirror overnight and have less setup issues. Right now I got a little tiny glass square that I shim with business cards each time.
My real question is should I make the pocket for the mirror with the surface bit? or should I use the flat bottom carbide bit? Or should I use something else? I have a feeling both will work but one it preferred over the other do to speed? Should I use the carbide and then clean up with the surface bit? I do realise I will have to do the corners with the carbide regardless.

I also need to flash the rc8 firmware and read up on the fusion post processor again.
Edit: Maybe not? Read on another post Vicious was having issues with it???
