Re: Best size end mill for milling perimeter of PCB? #mill
Just a data point: 0.0625 inches is 1/16 inch, a pretty common size in our metric-illiterate world.
Also, I’d really like to hear more about your vacuum fixture. I have built one, but I’m curious as to how you get that smart hole tolerance. Mine lets go when there is a hole of any significant size.

0.0625 inches equals 1.6mm, I'm going to try, I usually use 2mm.
Vaughn, are you using vacuum table?
I am close to finishing my smart vacuum table version, for low cost, high vacuum and low flow vacuum pump, I am using a refrigerator / fridge motir, which allows pcb milling even after drilling.
I hope to be successful, it is still necessary for you to be practical and useful
