Hi Rob,
Norboard's aspen/birch core is more problematic than poplar core material (Columbia). We get good results with a new tool (one that has never touched PC or MDF) at 500IPM and 18000 RPM, conventional cut, but shorter tool life than normal.

Dave

Just another thought on the subject, that might be a little easier to implement. If the first pass of a double pass cut were performed outside the part perimeter by a user defined amount. (say .030\") and the second pass was performed on the line. This should eliminate the \"lip\" whe...

We cut blind dados on almost every job. We change material thickness when creating TWD files on almost every job. Success with blind dados requires careful control of fit and depth clearances, tool diameters, material thickness and waste board thickness. ... and even then, as Bill put it, you need t...

Hi Forrest,

I believe you meant to say climb cutting will leave the fuzzy edge.

Yes, we're very busy. Busy is good; but doesn't leave much time for the fun stuff.
