I am working on a project which has an image and text inlay. The text is Cambria and is .41 inches high. The way Vectric described VCarve inlay worked fine for the image but when I tried it with the text the pocket side went about .1" deep while the insert went the full .2". The insert with the text did not come to a point so it did not fit in the pocket. I am using a 60 degree .25" V bit. I have just taken it down to .25" in depth and am about to see if it will fit. The top is not yet shaped to an edge but I will try it anyway. If it does not fit I will switch to a 60 degree .5" bit and cut deeper. Am I on the right track or is there a better way to approach text inlay?
