Cutting carbon on carvey

So - wanted to cut carbon, and finally found a safe and good method.

This has been cut with 0.2mm per layer, so i want to go faster and deeper, but im using slow feedrates due to not wanting water to overflow.

Basics; I built an acrylic tank on top of a 5mm acrylic plate. I left room for the plate to be mounted under the L bracket.

I then cut my carbon to size, and left two small pieces, which i stick under the L bracket, so the carving height is the same as the actual carbon position (due to it being on a piece of acrylic plate).

I then pour water into the acrylic “bath”, and presto!

It works really good, but i will need to find some good drill bits for this; Im using the lightblue smaller one (the middle one from here

Let me know if you have any questions, or maybe some comments!

Looks good. Are the yellow spots painted carbon or kevlar?

Its just the lighting hitting it oddly, its just carbon - so not painted, nor yellow =)
