    I figured you might. I hate cleaning up the hole when I need to resort to that method. I just take it a little slower, and let the CNC do the job. Alan

      I do not have CNC, yet. I am waiting for an answer (3 working days,

      I know that. I was thinking of drilling holes through the material with a twist drill, be faster to remove lots of the material and would not be using an expensive end mill.
