Quick first engraving attempt (thanks for the logo Ryan)

Forgot to change the position of the origin, so I ran off the edge of the stock (rookie mistake) but I’m really happy with the movement of the machine, smooth and accurate. Not sure about the choice of cheap router v bit, but still waiting for my order of proper mills to turn up, so it’s all I had on hand that was suitable for engraving.

Feed rates of 1200m/min for x and y, approx 20000rpm (this is hard to judge as the speed dial is just numbered 0-4) and depth of 1mm. Please feel free to critique and offer advise. Sorry, no vid this time.
