Re: Vacuum Problem

As we use several sizes of material on our table I cover the "open area"with vinyl templating material"with a few corian blocks to keep it from curling.When the vacuum is on this gets sucked down as well reducing any bleed.It's easily removable plus I can fold or roll it to fit as mat...

Re: Coming Soon....Free Medical Care

Unfortunately sometimes unpopular laws are going to get passed before elections(which politicians often race to do before the people make the choice for them), which might mean it could be too late.Our system although in the hands of the people is still not perfect,especially when voters are only ab...

Re: Alternative material machining???

We do almost exclusively solid surface on our machine,everything from countertops to boxes even signs.We've even had a guy bring in some marine grade plywood and a program to replace the deck of his boat!

Control Nesting Suggestion...

This way we could rotate the pieces accordingly so as not to start on a seam(for us who seam pieces together) sometimes it just has th...

Re: Rippled diagonal cut

We get it too where the router ramps into the cut(we are a solid surfaces shop and more often or not this seems to be on a seam).It also happened alot when we first got the machine until we switched from a climb to a conventional cut(in settings on control nesting).
