Yes, that is my standard feed rate, though the Z movement means I rarely get up to that speed. Usually the vacuum has no problem. At 10% stepover I'm only removing 0.05" per pass with the 1/2" ballnose.Do you always cut at 6ips
6 ips as wellWhat are you using for the Z feed rate
I'm not running Mach, I'm using the Shopbot control software with default ramp rates. I plan of doing some tweeking but we have had consistently good results with these settings for the past few years.and are you using the CV mode?
That would have worked much better. I love carving quarter sawn white oak, and leaving 0.75 would have improved stability.I used 2 inch quarter sawn white oak, and left a depth of .750 in the deepest place of the stock
