This is what can happen if you only finger-tighten a bit into the Dewalt 611. It took less than 6 seconds to reach the e-stop; this damage happened fast.
I was using a 1/4 inch carbide bit and blue tape/CA glue as a hold down. The bit slipped down and bit too deeply, causing the tape to release from the wasteboard.
The work piece rode up the bit and struck the Suck-It dust boot mount, shattering it. Luckily I did not have the boot in place for this cut. The oscillations also shattered two of my v-wheels on the z-axis.
Splinters and broken chunks of wood and plastic went everywhere. I was wearing a full face shield, and was leaning over watching the cut when everything went pear-shaped. Quite a bit of debris hit the shield.
My x-carve is going to be out of commission for a while. Better the machine than me!
One good thing came out of this… I can now cross-section this inlay and see how well the pieces are mating.
