Did a two step carve with a 1/2” straight bit as a roughing pass then a 60 deg. Bit to finish. Problem is, the v bit didn’t clean up what was left by the roughing pass. What am I missing / doing wrong?
Hmmm. Can you share a picture and/or the project?
what were your feed rates? did you zero out in the same spot? how many hold down clamps did you have? what is the depth of cut. How many passes did it take to get to your max depth on the roughing pass.
I try and set my detail pass with the v-bit to do the finish pass in one pass. if this is a long board did you have it secured down in the area that you were actually carving?
