    Use a 1/16 inch end mill bit to cut the parts out. By telling the machine you are using a 1/4 inch bit the feed rate will lock into 1st gear.

    If you cut them with the 1/8 inch bit watch it cut. It will do the corners slow then speed up. That speed up can sometimes give you problems as the bit cannot cut fast enough and it pushes the wood.

    If you saved the project with it setup for a 1/4" cutter and then use a 1/16" cutter your parts are going to be .094" big per side right? The machine has no way of knowing it needs to be offset in to compensate for a smaller cutter unless you set it up for the smaller cutter. If you draw the part undersized to start with I can see this working. Maybe I'm missing something in my translation of your method description.
