CNC Feeds and Speeds for Shapeoko XXL

I am frequently asked about the speeds and feeds for the different bits I use on my Shapeoko XXL CNC with a DeWalt router.  I figured it was time to start a list sharing the settings that have worked and produced good results for me.  Please note, these are just what has worked for me and my CNC and are what I would recommend.  Each CNC is different and you may need to lower them or even raise them based on the capabilities of your CNC. 

This will be a list I continually update as I add bits to the arsenal.  Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Click the name of each one to be taken to the bit I am referencing.
