Cycle time in a production drilling environment is critical... Faster is
... er... faster if it can be done at all.
The wood held up just fine. Imagine this is rough sawn lumber pallets...
The finish is not critical at all as long as I don't burst through the
product and cause problems that way.
These are clearance holes for fasteners so finish is not important.
True... Thus the original question I suppose. If you spend the money, a
bit can probably be purchased with very high RPM capabilities. As someone
else said, wood router tables run into the 10,000+ RPM range with the same
diameter... Carbide bits would change the whole scenario... But with this
guy's volume, I'm not sure that is an option for him.
A major difference between the router and the drill is the chip removal
and surface area in contact as well as the speed. That's where the chip
ejection is such an issue in aiding the speed and heat rejection as well...
