Milling wood with the rotary tool

So I printed out a mount for our 20 dollar rotary tool and stuck it onto the machine to test. We haven’t gotten any router bits for the Makita spindle yet, but we did have the rotary tool on hand so I thought we might as well try carving stuff out.

We carved out “Hello world” using G-code generated from Makercam and a diamond cone burr bit. Looks pretty good!
