I wanted to do one of the Vectric free projects: wooden peg box
Bought a 1-7/8" chunk of mahogany because it calls for 1-3/4 stock for the bowl part. However having really struggled to cut a bowl out of 1.5" birch I can’t figure how in the world I would get it to work on a S3. I have that Winston Moy wasteboard which eats up 3/4" of my Z but even if I remove it for the project I’m not sure I have enough Z travel to pull it off.
Interesting in folks limits and/or strategies for working with the small Z travel of the S3
