What's the best way to calculate feeds and speeds for u-drills?
A couple things to note about the u-drill (indexable drill) case.
First, when you are using the Indexable Endmill/Facemill choice, or any other endmill choice, be sure to use the plunge feedrate when plunging. It’s located just to the right of the regular feedrate and is quite a bit slower for good reason.
Second, you want to use the Indexable Drill tool choice since that’s really what the u-drills are.
