To learn what is SFM and how to go from SFM to RPM, click this link.

Spindle Speed:

Spindle RPM Formula = (12 * SurfaceSpeed) / (PI * CutterDiameter)

Feed Rate Calculator

Feed/Tooth (Chipload):
IPT (inches / tooth)

Number of Flutes (Teeth):

Feed Rate:
IPM (inches / minute)

Feed Rate Formula = Chipload * NumberFlutes * RPM
