    Default 3" bits

    Will a 3" bit work in the machine?

    I know the software will not expect a bit that long. Might it break the bit or jam into something?

    I didn't know if I could fit it up into the collet far enough, O guess I could cut a doll rod and see. Just wondered if anyone had used one

    The CW deep bits are 3.5" long. What software do you have and what type of bit are you thinking about?

    ok, I just want to try these as a regular 1/16th ballnose I do not want the bit to stick below the collet any further than the normal bit. Therefore I was wondering if the carvetight hade enough room for the 3 inch bit to slide up that far. or if anyone had tried these bits before

    No problem. There is lots of room for bits like that. Are you going to press on a CT adapter?

    I have just been using the standard pressure collet but I do have a er11 collet I thought I would use for this.

    I would go with the ER11 adapter. I use them all the time for just that purpose. I think the split adapter with a carbide shank is a bit risky.
