Forgot the trick

Postby M Farris » Mon May 21, 2018 10:12 pm

Hi all,
It has been a long time since I have posted and I hated missing McGrew's camp this year. Since I left my job a little over a year ago and went full time with the CNC it has been a little busy, but great.

I have used this trick before and thought I had it wrote down, but who knows. I am cutting a shallow pocket in a panel to accept a carving. I will be using the carving boundary by offsetting outwards once, inwards twice, and outwards once by the diameter of the bit...... or 1/2 the diameter of the bit? That is what I have forgotten. This allows for the bit and creates a tight fit. A little help please.

Thanks,

There's also a gadget that does it as well which can make things a bit easier if it's something you do a lot - viewtopic.php?f=47&t=27848

Thank you, much appreciated. I have to learn to write this stuff down.
