Hi everyone - I’m still very green to SO and CNC in general. One of the projects I want to tackle is making one of those cut out signs in script (like those ‘gather’ signs). I tried a few iterations so far, using the #102 cutter (.125 flat) and it has been a catastrophe. First I realized I need to use a boatload of tabs, but even with that on my 2nd to last final pass it is destroying some of the letters. I’m wondering is maybe the letters are too small? Tried it on MDF and .25" maple plywood.
I guess my question is, given if I make the sign big enough and use enough tabs, is there anything else I should be doing? Is the .125 flat endill the right one to use?
Thanks in advance!
