Skin All

Postby Forrest Chapman » Tue, Oct 31 2006, 3:29PM

Thermwood,

In control nest settings can we get a simple \"skin all parts\" button?
This would save time and maybe trouble from having to change our square inch setting back.

Thanks,
Forrest

I'll vote for that one too!!! Would be very handy for cutting thick material!

Be careful dong this. By making your wastboard thickness thicker than what it is, you will not only get your skin, but you will also make your tennons thicker and dados shallower....causing fit problems.

Jody,

Nick does this for the first pass then comes back and set his wasteboard the correct thickness for the cleanup pass. This right now is the only way to do double pass on all parts without actually changing your sq. inch settings. However if we have 10 sheets with 6 different size parts we don't want to have nest seperate or change our wasteboard everytime or change our sq. inch setting and have to remember to change back for normal stuff.

Hi Guys,
Along this same line of thought, there is a small snag in nesting dovetail drawer parts with the rest of the job. If you have your sq. in setting smaller than your largest drawer part, it will cut through before cutting the female dovetail with the 3/8 dovetail bit, as you can imagine, this will wreak havoc! I have talked to Scott about this and he is thinking of adding a setting to double cut all drawer parts, or a choice for such a thing. Presently I filter all drawer parts, cut the job, renest only the drawer parts and cut them, a little time consuming, but works for now
