Touch Pad

I notice that when I go to use my touch pad that there are VERY limited number of router bits that can be used to find X,Y,Z zero and none of them are V carve. I attempted to use a 1/8 bit in place of the 1/4 and found that everything was off center. So, I am wondering is there some way to add bit t...

Painting inside v carved letters

I am making a small plaque using a v carve bit to inscribe a Bible verse. Afterward I would like to paint the inside of those letters. How to do that? I am thinking of covering my work piece with masking or some other type of tape, then doing the carving and afterward spray painting the entire surfa...

Re: Simple Text Sign

I apologize, but I have one other question about this. The plaque/sign I am making is 32 inches by 3.16 inches by .66 inches thick. I am using tool #102 a 1/8 inch flat cut bit. The presets that come up with this end up running the project in 15 hours 26 minutes. That seems like a bit much to me. Th...

Re: Simple Text Sign

My project is much more simple than the video. It was very helpful and in just a few moments I was able to finish this. I wish I had asked sooner. Again, I want to let you know how much I appreciate the help. God bless you! (Sorry I am not politically correct).

Re: Simple Text Sign

I am using the Carbide Create that came with my router. I am sure that what I want to do is easy, as you say, but when you've never done it before and all you have to look at is that software tutorial (not very helpful), and you've no prior experience it's quite challenging - at least for a person w...

Simple Text Sign

I want to make a very simple plaque that reads "IN GOD WE TRUST". What I want is to remove the material from outside of the letters and inside of those letters like the "O" and the "D". I also need to have a boarder around the edge of the plaque. All of the material between the letters and the board...

z axis not at 90°

I have an issue I just don't know how to resolve and am hoping someone might be able to help with. My gantry and work surface are perfectly parallel. I have measured them with a digital angle finder that's accurate to .2°. Using that same angle finder, placed against my router bit gives me a reading...
