When I’m cutting bigger pockets, my cutter tends to cut bugger chunks from the pocket which jams the vacuum. I’m sure someone else must have this issue, but I haven’t found anything on this forum.
I have a pretty standard setup with my Shapeoko and Vacuum:
And one of the operations I’m doing where the vacuum jams are the following:
The cutter begins to make big splinters instead of shavings when going from right to left. Those splinters get stuck sideways in the opening of the vacuum which then accumulates more splinters and ends up blocking everything.
Besides getting a bigger industrial vacuum, do you have any advice on how to deal with this?
