Feeds And Speeds
If you’ve experienced long carve times with your 1/8” bits, or even had them break because they cannot handle the workload, then double the output with this 2-piece set of the “BADGER” high-speed roughing endmill bits by IDC Woodcraft.
The BADGER has been called “The little bit with a BIG BITE” by our fellow creators who tested it. For a 1/8” CNC router bit, no other 1/8” bit can match its aggressiveness and blazing speed for removing material from your CNC router projects.
With a 1/8 shank and 1/8” cut diameter, the BADGER falls into the roughing bit category. The BADGER is not designed to deliver clean cuts. Its sole purpose is speed, and it excels at it!
Featuring a staggering 1/4" depth of cut per pass, 80ipm plunge rate, 70% step-over, and a whopping 130 inches per minute cut rate, the BADGER is undisputed when it comes to rapid material removal from your CNC router woodworking projects.
Comparing to other 1/8” endmills, the BADGER can remove material 10X faster than standard 1/8” endmills

Getting a roughing bit like the BADGER is not just about time savings. It is also about saving your other 1/8” bits for the finishing touch-up AND prolonging the life of them.
By using the BADGER as your workhorse for major material removal, you'll extend the lifespan of your regular CNC router bits. Let them handle the finishing touches while the BADGER handles the heavy lifting when a lot of material needs to be removed in fine detail…like Aztec calendars.
The Badger bit is fantastic! I've used it on smaller projects where the HOG or the Beast at 1/4 inch are a little too large when roughing. I'd recommend this bit if you have lots of tight areas to remove before your finish bit is used.
Should greatly reduce carve times using this bit & a small offset. Very high quality!!
It’s Great! Thanks for everything!!
It’s a amazing

The bits from IDC Woodcraft are high quality and reasonably priced, but for me that isn’t why I buy from IDC. I believe the value from IDC comes from all the videos where I have learned how to use my CNC at no cost. The tool database IDC provides at no charge is so helpful in setting up successful tool paths.
