5/8" Dovetail Bit

Postby Jason Rains » Thu, Jul 03 2008, 3:26PM

Hi guys, I need some input of setting up a new dovetail bit. We are using 5/8 drawer material and have been using a bit made for 1/2" material for dovetails. We purchased a dovetail bit for 5/8 material and are not sure what we need to do to set it up. Changes in program, etc.... Any advice is much appreciated.
Thanks
Jason

Jason,
You will need to create a drawerbox using 5/8" thick material. Then follow the instructions in the link below.

http://order.ecabinetsystems.com/update ... Manual.htm

After clicking on the link you will see a column of option on the left=hand side of the screen. Select dovetail drawer boxes>eCabinet Systems Drawer Box Designer Setup. This wll tell you what you need to change.
