Re: Surface Board

Dropped down to 1/2" board, then surfaced both sides bringing it to roughly .45"

Re: Surface Board

Are you really trying to pull vacuum through particle board, or did you mean to say MDF? My mistake, I meant MDF. I have went through and checked for leaks on all of the piping and machined both sides of it. The issue is not enough air moving through the board. I ordered some 1/2" MDF, hoping by th...

Surface Board

Hey everyone,

Any thoughts on what spoilboard to use for a large machine? I use 48"x120" and I think my 3/4" low-density particle board is killing my suction.

What does everyone else use?

Ahh yes, I was expecting them to show up in my drawing files folder, not thinking about the fact that I am the one who created that folder :r...
