if you have never tried out chilipeppr i highly recommend it. it's what i already used for everything, but i mostly cut plastic wood and metal. there are built in widgets for making circuit boards so i figured i would give it a try and wow was it as easy as it gets. it has auto leveling and everythi...
when it gums up it's the aluminum melting. everything about machining metal is about controlling the heat. the thinner the material the less of a conduit it has to evacuate heat and the larger chance it has to start melting to the bit. also chip evacuation is key, they have already been cut so they ...

Anyone use a dust deputy with composites? I swear I read somewhere that composites don't play well with them but can't back it up. My homemade water trap is decent at best, collects about 1/2 to 2/3 of the material i cut some composites, plastic, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, hdpe, polypro, acr...
