Re: anyone using a Solid state drive yet???

Its not messing with it when you are on your 3rd HD. Bought my 2nd Thermwood at an auction several years ago and immediately put a new (HD) one in from Thermwood so I could start fresh. That one started to slow down a lot and had a sector error coming up and my Brother, who is an IT guy, said it is ...

Re: Max Feed Speed

Don't forget that the bit makes a HUGE difference and what material you are using. A Vortex "Tornado" can cut like butter at 1000 to 1200+ IPM on straight cuts but do a alot of shorts runs with arcs and keep the fire extinguisher handy because it will burn up. Going from a 2 flute to 3 or ...

Re: Fuzz issues with CARB certified Baltic Birch???

Well good news!!!! :D The new 3184 Vortex bits are working great. Out of 200 plus sheets we are only on our 2nd set of bits. The first set did 104 sheets which is pretty good for BB. Ordered 6 more to have in stock. Unfortunately Vortex's 3400 series chip-breakers do not have the chip-breaker on the...

Re: Fuzz issues with CARB certified Baltic Birch???

Hey Joe, Unless the Russians are selling their logs to the Chinese and then buying the plywood back from them and then repacking with Russian writing on it, I think it is still genuine Russian Birch. I have not and do not buy the Chinese birch. I know that when the Russian birch became scarce a few ...

Re: Fuzz issues with CARB certified Baltic Birch???

Hey Will, Never had a problem with it like this before. Not sure what moisture content is but the fuzz is only on the top and bottom of the part, not in the middle and mainly on a crosscut though it does do it on a radius also. The new tools will be in tomorrow, Tuesday, and just unloaded another tu...

Fuzz issues with CARB certified Baltic Birch???

Has anyone else had issues with CARB certified Baltic Birch? Not sure if it is the CARB or the tooling but in over 10 years of cutting BB, I have never had our bits wear out so fast and cause fuzz on both top and bottom. Ordered new bits from different supplier and will see on Feb 2nd if they make a...

CN help files or Manual????

It has been Sooooooo long since I have had to think about it but is there an updated user manual available for CN or a way to access a help file at the controller (THM V5.05)? I am trying to get my operator up to speed and have not need it for a while.
Thanks,

Re: puzzle joints

Hey Brad, Thanks for the post but can you guys keep that arctic air up there? :P I will try to use 3/8 as outline and see if that changes anything. Also if you are using 2 sided white melamine, will the mortise side of the joint be a flip op? or if the 3/8 tool used as outline will answer the questi...

puzzle joints

Is anyone using the puzzle joints successfully? Trying to build a few cabs with 3/4" white MDF core melamine and it seams to show the tenon side of the joint but not the mortise in the nest. When it is written to CNC, it comes up with error tool not found. It is looking for a tool between .375 ...

Hey Jody,
Pretty cool. I like the 1st song the best.
Did you have any input to the sound?

Also at 6:44 in the timeline what software are they using with the Wacom Tablet to move the smile symmetrically?
