Can anyone explain to me how to calculate the feed and spindle RPM?
I'll cut in 3/8" thick aluminum using 3/8" dia tool

I want to make speed calculator.
I need SFM (surface feet per minute) data for various materials.
Does anybody have something I can use?

It contains good general information concerning speeds, etc., but also material-specific information.
