    I use both up cut and down cut tooling, depending on the job and the depth. I also use compression cutters which have up-cut at the tip and are otherwise downcut. These are ideal for sheet goods for...

    I's nice you're already seeing a difference in the amount of "splash" coming off the top of the blade, even without further tweaking. Perhaps I missed it...did you set things up so you can move the...

    I only ever put BLO on the MDF work surfaces I've used. The miter bench that I originally installed in the early 2000s and just decommissioned and removed only ever had BLO on the MDF top and it was...

    Yes, software like that which Vectric creates supports tiling and it will be "similar" to what you know from your printing experience. Other software may also support this, but I'm only personally...

    One really nice thing about these 2-by sized machines is that they are small enough that you don't have to have full access on three sides to load them and work with them. That makes them easier to...

    My recommendations:

    1) Go as large as you can accommodate and find for your budget. Larger wheels and height can be an advantage. You can cut small things on a big saw, but can't cut big things on...

    My advise...leave it alone. It's costly and complicated to repair a dent that deep in any kind of invisible way with no guarantee as to the "invisible". It may be less noticeable leaving well alone.
