Default End mill bit question.

I am going to be completing a Galil 80%. Can I use a router? And if so what type and size end mill bits should I buy?

No, Routers spin way to fast to cut steel without burning up the end mill

I have a drill press that I can set the speed to 800rpm. Is that slow enough?

Speed is not the problem with a drill press,

I won’t recommend anything that will be used in a drill press
Sorry you need a mill of some sort

But if you insist buy the cheapest you can get and buy a dozen cause you’re going to loose a few

Use a dremel with a carbide tip.

The FCG can be done with your drill press. The rest... drill some pilots and connect the dots with the carbide tips and cut off wheels. Go slow. Finish with files.

How Wonky it looks depends on how steady your hand is.
