Just got my Carvey a week or so ago and have enjoyed it so far. It definitely is a lot different than using a scroll saw where my previous skill set lies.
Got a question on fine detail carving.
I get a bit of breakout on the wood when when it is very thin stand up piece like you have on some of the fonts. Is it best to slow down or speed up the feed rate when this happens? I am aware it has a lot to do with the wood grain and things will vary on that but I am using Mahogany, Purple Heart, and Walnut.
In the picture below I used poplar as it is far cheaper to test on. You can see the break out in the lettering.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
