miterfolding solid surface

Has anyone been using the amana insert bits (specifically the 46 and 91 degree insert bits) to miterfold front edges and intergral cove splashes? I ran a test piece about 30" long and the chips rewelded and smoked the insert. Looking for anyone who has experience with these cutters in solid sur...

Re: Nesting 24" cabinet sides

A non-mortised tool is going to clean out way better. Your speeds all look good but the chips are not getting removed fast enough causing them to recut. The extra heat will wear your tool faster causing even more heat. Forrest As a side note, I've tried the 2 and 300$ dollar diamond bits with very ...

Re: Nesting 24" cabinet sides

I have the collar set to 0. I'll try to attach a picture of the completed sheet nest on the table. I'm cutting a full width dado for the deck and top that ends flush with the back of the cabinet using a half inch downcut.

Nesting 24" cabinet sides

I am trying to nest 24" base cabinet sides on a sheet of 94"x97" melamine. If I outline with a 3/8" bit and set an additional part clearance of 0.04" (to clear joinery on adjoining pieces) the controller wont nest two deep in the Y direction. Does anyone currently get the co...

Re: Would be a nice option

It took me a few jobs to get this protocol into my habit, but if you set these options up BEFORE you make your cabinets or layouts, in the appropriate editors, then they apply to the doors/fronts/dboxs that you put on your cabinets. it is important to do this before you put fronts on otherwise you a...

Re: Shelf holes in backs of cabinets

Awesome, the negative value works well, as long as it doesnt put those holes that are outside the piece into an adjacent piece. I'll try it out and see if it works well. Thanks for all the input!

Shelf holes in backs of cabinets

I see there is now a way to add shelf holes in the back without going into the part editor. I've been playing around with the new dialog trying to get a set of holes to be bored into the center only of the back on cabinets that exceed 30" in width. I can't seem to figure out how to eliminate th...
