Hello. I’ve had my X-carve, that I purchased used, for about 2 years now and so far I’m very happy with it. Last December I engraved the police logo for my town’s Volunteers In Police Services group, of which I’m a current member. We didn’t have anything in our desk area to signify our group. Meanwhile the cops had nice placards or water jet cut pieces with the police logo scattered throughout their respective areas.
At the time I engraved this I didn’t think about posting it as I thought it wasn’t a big deal compared to the work I’ve seen on this forum. After viewing a few videos on YouTube, Thank you, Paw Paw, I decided it did show the capabilities of the X-Carve.
I engraved the logo onto a piece of white Corian that I had. The piece 12.5” square. I used a no name 1.2mm carbide end mill that I ordered from Banggood. I reduced the feed rate to 18”/ minute and ran the job with my 611 router dial on 3 with no coolant or air blast. I also had a layer of blue masking tape over the whole plate to allow for spray painting afterwards. The whole job ran for a long, long time without a hitch. The Easel simulator says 19hrs. I just don’t recall that it took that long. I hand painted the two shades of blue by hand. My group liked this plaque and the cops are a bit envious.
