Yes I figured it out sometimes “Brain Farts Just Happen”
Ok, sorry, I was giving directions in Easel.
You should NEVER trust a fart!
That $h!t will sneak up on you
100% better so far thanks for all the help folks.
oh man… you need to get a downcut bit and some decent mdf
That’s using a compression bit.
And I just blew a breaker in the middle. hopefully I can get it started again.
compressions only work if your first pass is deeper than the transition point on the bit. Most have a .3" or better trans point
The first part of a compression bit (.25 inch or so) is Upcut.
You are essentially using an Upcut bit.
It will clean up with the V-bit portion of the carve?
Not much choice in the MDF around here, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Or Menard’s all have the same suppliers. And I have run out of money to buy more bits till Claim season starts again or I sell something.
BTW last home position in easel doesn’t work when you lose power. Luckily where it started carving again was in the waste part of the project.
thats where either a 3 axis block or homing and a bump stop come in handy
I was thinking a carpenters square in the same spot each time. Until I get the Triquetra set up and running. Working on setting up UGS but this project is supposed to be done tomorrow.
I’m in N.E. Ohio and the MDF from Lowes is very different compared to Home Depot. Lowes material is much denser and cuts way better.
I worked for Home Depot 3 years and here in KS they all have the same suppliers for MDF and most wood products. And I bought this from Lowe’s 1/2 mile from home.
supplier could be the same but product may be different.
True it’s the quality that they want to pass on to their customer on what they receive. Point taken.
Regardless I don’t like MDF anyway but test runs are cheaper in MDF than Hardwoods.
