Tomorrow I intend to test out the rotary attachment for the first time. I am going to turn a 22" Cherry dowel, 1.25D". My thought is that the best bit to use will be an *upcut* 1/4" endmill. Is my thinking correct?
I have done some inlays using the down cut because it preserves the top surface. However, on the dowel, will an upcut give a better cut surface?
