This is somewhat a continuation from a thread I started on Saw Creek Mill about lasers. In a nutshell I'm trying to cut 18" x 5/8" strips out of High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) of two different thicknesses.
The first thickness is 3/16". My questions are:
1. Would I be able to use a 1/16" router bit to cut 3/16" or would I have to go larger. (I'm trying to minimize waste)
The second thickness is .020"
2. Once again could I use a 1/16" router bit.
I was advise to use a vacuum table because I am not going to leave bridges or gaps between the material. BTW these sheets come in 4' x 8' and I plan on buying a kit CNC machine or a laser cutter.
Any insight would be helpful,
