A simple figure.

Around 1.4″ at max in diameter, if I’m gonna use 1.5″ delrin.

How about foam then. Luckily I got scratch foam from the shelf, with help of Fengyi Zhu who taught me how to use this band saw.

Placing material (foam is hard to hold thus I stuck the cone further inside the foam.)

Remembered to set tool. My 1/8″ bit’s flute length is 0.46″.

Required L is 0.97″ and I installed the bit to be more than 1″. Someone told me his didn’t cut through fully and I think it may have something to do with this parameter.
