The process worked great for my first test cutting paper.
But that was just a stepping stone towards what I really wanted to do, which is cutting thin (0.024 in) wood veneers.
The difficulty I encountered is that wood veneers don’t lay perfectly flat. At least the old veneers I’ve been experimenting with all have a slight wave/bend in them. So I tried adding some painters tape on top for additional support.
This worked well enough to get some results, but not every part survived. And I learned to pay attention to the wood grain, these veneers can fracture very easily.
For my next attempt I added blue tape to the (entire) back side of the veneer. This provided a little more support and a better surface for the tack-it glue to hold. Not sure I have found the best way to accomplish cutting wood veneers, but I feel like I am on the right path.
In Carbide Create I’m following @45rpm recommendations, my depth per pass is 1/3 the veneer thickness (0.024 / 3 = 0.008). At zero RPM and with no dust collection the running process is so quiet I can actually hear that tiny blade cutting the wood, it’s kind of a “crunch” sound but that is only audible during the 2nd pass. So the top and bottom cut are very thin/easy, and at 80ipm it’s happening almost too fast.
