I need to cut a 1/4 inch slot in 1/4 inch inch thick aluminum. I currently have
- A drill press
- A router in a router table
- Carbide bits for the router
My current plant is to drill the beginning and ending holes of the slot in the aluminum with the drill press. Once the holes are drilled I intend to use the router with a 1/4 straight bit to connect the starting and ending holes to form the slot.
My question - has anyone ever done anything like this before, and if so, did it work? Is it dangerous to health and tools?
