What is Depth of Cut? How Deep can I Cut on a Single Pass?

QUESTION:

What is Depth of Cut? How deep can I cut on a single pass?

ANSWER:

Great question! a good rule of thumb is the depth of cut shouldn’t be greater than 1/2 the diameter of the tool; especially on smaller machines.  Any more than this and you risk messing up the bearings in your machine. It’s easy to cut deeper, but if you want your smaller milling machine to last, stick with it!  You have a bigger machine? follow the manufacturer’s standards.
