Re: New Pocket Screw Joinery

We have successfully cut many pocket screw joints at this point. It works pretty well, especially because we cut almost all of our parts from plywood and cut very little melamine and mdf. A self-piloting pocket screw easily bores through the bottom of the pocket even though there is no pilot hole as...

Re: New Pocket Screw Joinery

Thank you Scott,

I didn't notice the selection box for top/bottom of part before you mentioned it. Now I see it and it is obvious. This is a lot of good info. Just what I was looking for. We will be testing this joinery soon and I will post about our experience once we have some results.

Regards,

New Pocket Screw Joinery

Hi All, It looks like Build 12 has some cool additions. I am most interested in the new pocket screw joinery. Are there any instructions or tutorials for this anywhere? Will we be able to develop our own customized pocket screw hardware patterns? How will we get the pockets to appear on the opposite...

Re: Thin Strip of Material at End of Tenon

Hi Josh, It also occurred to me that, theoretically, the length of the tenon and the fuzz on the end of it should not be affected by the depth clearance value. So, I guess I will try a .375" tenon with a .02" depth clearance because after all ... that is what I am looking for! Looking forw...

Re: Thin Strip of Material at End of Tenon

Update: I have tried Daniels setting of .375" tenon and a .015" depth clearance as opposed to my previous setting of .376" tenon and .02" depth clearance. Since I have made these adjustments we have noticed significantly less of the fuzz/ leftover material issue. I had been conce...

Re: Thin Strip of Material at End of Tenon

Thanks Josh. I remember now that you explained this to me once quite a while ago. It seems odd though that this left over material is just considered typical. Do any Thermwood people have anything to say on this subject?

Re: Thin Strip of Material at End of Tenon

Thanks Daniel, These tenons are being cut with as large a tool as possible. My tenon length is set at .376" (so it can be cut with a 3/8" tool) with a .02" depth clearance. This consistently results in a sliver of material on the end of the tenons that is maybe .01" +-. It's not ...

Thin Strip of Material at End of Tenon

Hello All, What is the deal with the thin strip of material we get at the end of our tenons on a consistent basis? Sometimes it comes off very easily or simply gets crushed inside the joint once two parts are put together, but often times we see our guys on the shop floor knocking these strips off o...

Re: Fixed tenon thickness vs. percentage

Thanks for the quick response Josh. This was very informative. I will translate the CNC verbage so that my supervisor can understand what is going on here.

Fixed tenon thickness vs. percentage

Hello eCabinets communtiy, I was wondering what the specific reason(s) are for using percentages rather than fixed values for tenons & dados. My supervisor has asked me about this a couple times and I cannot give him an anwer that satisfies him. He figures that, if the tenon is referenced off of...

Green & Blue Operations in eCabinet Nesting

Hi all,

Can someone give me a quick explanation of what the difference between the green and blue operations in eCabinet Nesting is? How can I flip parts over if I am getting unexpected results as far as the "B" side of the material being shown?

Thanks,
Chris

Nesting Material with No Grain

Hello all, I am new to the forum and need some help with what seems to be a simple problem. When we are nesting TWD files in Control Nesting we are not getting very good results with materials that do not have grain direction. We are trying to nest 1/2" MDF & 1/2" Melamine backs. In bo...
