So I cut this out tonight, thickest wood I’ve done so far (only done 1/4" or thinner until this 1" piece) but on the final cutout the machine shut off and disconnected (literally at 99.8%) but it was easy enough to finish it with my Dremel and some sanding. I think the 1/4" bit was rubbing the walls inside the outside cutout. So, the question is, what is the proper fix so this does not happen in the future?
My thoughts are either a bit with longer flues (mine was only 3/4" while the cut depth was just a hair over 1") or somehow make it cut wider (pocket) so there it does not get pinched between the 2 walls??
In other words I believe it over powered the spindle motor due to friction though it did not sound bad or anything and did not burn the wood. And I was keeping it vacuumed out well so the fact I ran out of flute is my (NOOB) best guess. Oh, and the settings were all the default for the bit that CC decided to use.
