1. Clamp Material and Home the machine.
1.1. Most parts involve cutting through so it is almost always a good idea to put a sacrificial plate under the raw stock that the part is to be made of. In this instance we are using scrap medium density fiber board, cut to size on a band saw.
1.2. Home the mill with the HOME command. This makes sure that the mill can be returned to the same position after the machining has begun.
1.3. Put the Cutting tool in the spindle. For this part and tool path a 0.125 inch center cutting end mill is all that is required.
