Wasteboard, finally

I screwed a wasteboard atop my S3XXL and surfaced it back when I got the machine. Today I finally got around putting holes for threaded inserts in my wasteboard. Of course, I missed one hole when I did the CAM, but such is life. Only 24x24 for now, as I had 100 inserts and vCarve Desktop can only deal with that size for now.


And if anybody wants it, here’s the (corrected) gcode to run this. Use a .25" endmill and zero at the surface of the front, left corner of the wasteboard. Inserts were from McMaster, #92105A100
