    I have almost finished building my C-Beam, with just a few electrical bits to do on it. But the question i have is what cutter bits am i best off getting to get me started?

    The C-Beam is fitted with a Dewalt D26200 and the spec is:

    Power Input - 900 Watts
    Power Output - 620 Watt
    No Load Speed 16000-27000 rpm
    Collet Size 6-8 mm
    Max. Cutter Diameter 36 mm

    I would intend to be cutting everything from MDF to hard wood ply and alloy plate I just need a few bits to get me going and need to know the best place to get them from i'm in the UK.

    Cheers

    Iain

    6mm shank, end mills are cheap and plentiful (0.5 - 6mm) if you want finer bits you have to drop down to 1/8 (3.175mm) collet endmills, engraving bits and v bits go right down to 0.02 mm

    ebay is your best bet unless you have the money to throw at top end endmills what go way over £100 each
