Apologies if this is a dumb question. I’m looking to tool up and almost pulled the trigger on some 1/4" upcut bits (2 flute) to get me started on a bunch of forms and fixtures I use in guitar making. The reason I didn’t is they have a 3/4" depth of cut and I will be cutting 3/4" plywood. Is this ‘cutting’ it too close? Should I look for longer bits with a depth of 1" or so? I was hoping not to as the price goes up and I expect to crash and burn.
Any thought, suggestion, or tips would be greatly appreciated.
