      Guys-   Just to point out the
      obvious: while that is a router bit in the video, that's
      not a router doing the cutting. While you can do it with a
      handheld router, it should not be considered as easy as
      using a milling machine, the proper tool for the job.
      Nothing beats rock-solid setups for milling. When something
      cuts loose, workpiece or tooling, it can ruin your day. Be
      safe.

      Has anyone tried to work 6061 or cast

      aluminum with a

      woodworker’s router and carbide bits ?



      Slotting or edge shaping with profile bits or pin routing
      ?
