2 tips for new X-carve owners

I’ve owned my x-carve for two months and have been learning the hard way. I have two tips to share.

  1. I carved up my waste board on my first couple of projects. Today I put a couple of paint stirrers under my project and it worked perfectly.

  2. I’ve broken 2 or 3 bits at the end of a carve. They’ve hit my clamps on the return home. If you simulate your project before you start cutting, you can get an idea of where to place your clamps.


Thanks good tips

Good tips. I think we have all been there and every once in a while we go back. That is part of learning. I just heard on the radio today if you fail you learn something.

None of us are done learning :joy:
