Long Reach 1/4 Endmill Recommendations

Hey yall,

I’m in need of a bit that can reach down through 2" material. The material is White Ash.

Wondering if anyone has used 1/4" long reach endmills before and has some suggestions.


ALSO- would anyone mind sharing their feeds and speeds they use on a 3/4 bowl bit through hard wood? Carveco has it set as 40 ipm at .125 doc, but I feel it can go much faster.

Plunge bits or slot bits are normally what I’ve seen the longer straight flute bits called. You may have luck searching for that nomenclature.


Any luck with your question? I actually have the same one except I’m cutting through 2" cedar
