My real question isn't steps per inch but what should feed rate and acceleration be set at? I am not sure how fast or hard I can push this machine. I have the blacktoe 4.1 so it has the larger X axis motor. any input is welcome.
thanks

Rapid rate and acceleration should probably set around 500 and 5, respectively, to start with. With a 1/4" end mill, try cutting at 50-100ipm, 0.17" deep, 50% stepover.
If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
