Are you aware of any examples of intentionally angling an x-carve spindle by a significant amount (~45 degrees)?
I’m having an issue with wear of the tips of ball nose bits on hard material and it seems like it might be useful to tilt the spindle to ensure a broader use of the bit while plunging. I’d like to avoid reinventing the wheel if this has been solved before though.
How much granite did you cut though?
I dont remember my first post on here but pretty sure it had nothing to do with suggesting Evil Kinevelism on my XCarve…
Yes, the fix is…new fresh ball nose bits
While your idea is decent the practical implications WILL cramp your style. Just saying
I ve been having the same trouble with 2 sided carving so what i do now is mount the job seperate and rotate my whole xcarve upside down on a rotisserie , that way i dont have to flip my job,
Isn’t that like holding the light bulb and turning the house?
