Longer Sac Board?

Anybody create a sacrifice board that extends beyond the "front" of the SO3 waste board? There's probably another 2 inches of cutting area where the router extends beyond the SO3 waste board. Any thoughts about doing this? My sacrifice board is 3/4" thick so I should be able to support cutting out t...

Re: How to maximize clean cut

I don't mean to sound like an a**hole here, but you could spend you life chasing this problem. You have been told the right stuff so far: downcut bit, larger bit, rough pass and final pass, tape over cut, and get a new bit. This is all good. But you will never get a perfect cut. In this case, I'd us...

How do you balance this bit? Since the cutters are removable replacing them correctly is important. I'm not going to buy one, I was just curious.

1/4" or 1/8"?

I intend to offer both, but I suspect one will be significantly more in demand.
Right now I'm a 1/4" fan and interested in your probe.

Re: Earth Grounding a Dewalt DWP611 (110V)

What is the benefit of doing this? A small percentage of SO3 owners had times when a job would simply stop mid-run. Mid-run stops would happen intermittently and under varying circumstances. This problem has been frustrating for Carbide3d and the customers as solutions would work for some customers...

Why Auto Level?

This a slightly warped piece of 1/8 inch thick red oak that I engraved with two squares, then found the warp to be too big. The center is about 1 to 1.5 millimeters higher than the left and right edges. Board is about 20 cm wide. The text was created with Vectric Aspire and the auto leveling was per...

Re: Earth Grounding a Dewalt DWP611 (110V)

Excellent the machine is working. Ghastly the airborne MDF dust. Please work. Up dust collection and an air filtration system. I have a dust deputy (cyclone separator) and a vacuum, but had not turned on the vacuum as I didn't want to interfere with the testing of the grounding solution. <<insert c...

Mid job stopage - Solved

I could engrave successfully but I could never get a job using the Porter Cable 1.25 mortising bit to complete. The solution was to ground the router. It was really that simple. Picture and description at this link: http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7556 My solution is not the real e...
