aluminium for cnc engraving

What quality aluminium do you buy for cnc routing/engraving frontpanels ?
I understand the softness of aluminium can be a problem ?

thanks.

Hi Ward,

well I've never had any problem engraving any type of aluminium, I use WD40 as a lubricant and its clean all the way.

I guess if you are really worried, keep your feed slow and with lube the cutter fast..
