Working with the Home Depot or Lowe's stuff can be challenging. Yesterday I cut a large model, about 18 inches in diameter, when it was done, FUZZIES, big nasty ones. Plus, the roughing tool had done some chip out on the bead. Grrrrr.
So this turned into an experiment.
It is pretty much an natural instinct for woodworkers to cut with the grain, sand with the grain, do everything with the grain. Even get fuzzies with the grain. I decided to go across the grain.
So I reset the angle to 90, my feedrate is 400 IPM (no typo there) and depth of cut is .06 with a .062 tapered ballnose. Same as when I was cutting with the grain. Here are some pics mid cut:
The tool is cutting from right to left, notice the difference in fuzzies, AMAZING.
About the pine. I typically buy 2 X 10, then rip about 3 1/2 from each edge, discard the middle piece because that is flat grained. Then due a glue up alternating the pieces. Seems to help with the warpage. My opinion anyhow.
If you are cutting pine, you might want to try going across the grain.
