I have ruined several signs when the center of A’s, B’s, D’s etc have come loose and jammed the X-Carve and ruined the sign. Any ideas on the loose center section not to jam up?
Ignored … My first thought was that he was cutting the “center” of the letter out and that was getting stuck and causing issues. The opposite of what you show Phil.
I have used double sided tape. Works most of the time. Better solution I think is to pocket cut them as mentioned previously. Also fun fact the hole in a letter everyone is referring to as an “island” is actually called a counter.
You could try the masking tape and super glue method.https://youtu.be/3uTsQ3dYRrk Works good for me small lettering that is fragile where tabs are a pita. I also pocket cut the islands two stage carve with a larger bit to blow through pockets quick then go fine bit for the cut out and detail work but I did all the small lettering on this with masking tape super glue method
