Suggested Feed Rates
These are only starting points. They will vary with application and workpiece condition.
Material or Application Type
Feed Per Tooth (inches)
|Thin Walled Workpieces
Oblique Entry / Curved Surfaces
Semi-Circles / Fragile Setups
|.001 / .002 (.003 FPT with Work Hardening Materials)|
|Soft / Gummy Materials||.004 / .005|
|Typical / Average Applications||.003 / .004|
|Deep Holes||.004 / .005|
Difficult-to-machine materials will require reduced feed rates.
