I’m very new to X-carve and have been proto typing some ornaments and learning as I go. I have been experimenting using different bits and whilst cutting 6mm MDF using an upcut end mill bit, the plastic ring came down the shaft and onto the mdf causing the bit to swerve into my work - it would have been the perfect prototype! ! After stopping the machine and raising the router up the Z path, I discovered the plastic bit ingrained in the mdf. Comparing it with my other Inventable bits, it clearly had melted!
Has anyone else had their plastic colour rings fall off or melt away on their Inventables router bits? I’m wondering if I was supposed to remove them before use?
