    Thanks for all the information. I will research the black box idea and see what I can come up with. I found an older thread with more details too, so that was helpful. Looks like a much better way to...

    Yes, cabinet parts, so 12" x 10" might be the smallest for a narrow box top or bottom, most parts larger than that.

    Vacuum pump questions....

    Thinking about a 4x8 CNC router with a vacuum table. I'm somewhat limited on electricity and notice that a lot of units are 12-20 hp for the vacuum pump, and three phase. So given I'd have to use...

    So far everybody is loving the new format, easier to post, add pictures and files... and knock on wood, hopefully we don't have any of the missing or delayed messages that Yahoo was so famous for.

    The Felder Owners Group has moved!

    Given the impending demise of Yahoo groups, we have moved the Felder Owners Group over to a new site. We are mostly Felder owners, but cater to everything related to sliding table saws and...

    Brazed tooling is notoriously weak, especially in smaller sizes. I'm coming from the metal machining world and we use solid carbide for pretty much everything. I have been woodworking for probably...

    You mention a brazed cutter, which means that the smaller 1/4" shanked versions are extremely weak at the top of the cutting edges and the base metal of the shank is mild steel. If you had tried a...

    I just did a kitchen remodel and was cutting toe kicks, 3 7/8" at one end, 4 1/8" at the other on a 6 foot long stretch. Also I cut tapered legs using two units set to create a 3/4" taper over 24",...

    Hi Jon,

    You calibrate the fence scale to the blade (instructions are on the website in PDF format), then you read directly off the tape measure or DRO (in the case of the DRO version). You can...

    One vs. two is probably our most asked question. Two main reasons, the use of one with the cross cut fence stop means you will have your stops roughly 20" or more apart. For shorter pieces you will...

    If you really meant an 1/8" bit thru that deep of material, I have used a Rotozip drywall bit in my CNC mill to machine out a register into a solid walnut 3/4" board and could have easily done...

    Hi Kev,

    I will have to play with that... but the setting of the slider for Image Density did clear up any of the side to side shift. I was impressed at how clear the engraving got. It slowed it...

    Never mind... I cleaned and double checked everything, no issues there, other than I probably should get a new lens. Looked more in the software and there is a slider for "Image Density" and I slid...

    Small logo with shadow imaging....

    I'm working on a job for a customer and their logo is small and the parts are small. I think the smaller text is about 4 point. To the naked eye (well, with my glasses) it doesn't look too bad, but...

    Without knowing the exact shapes, it's hard to say, but I would route from the back down until the thickness to the bottom was say .100" then go to the laser and finish the profile. Or another...

    I've been using the 3D printer to create jigs for the laser quite often. I make a precision level and the surface I used to engrave with the CNC mill is not flat, it slopes about 5. The machine...

    I could be wrong, but I suspect those are anodized and no paint is involved.
