    Mikey...
    I'm thinking you misread my post. Going from a 5 tool inline rack to an 8 tool rotary I guessed was a couple grand extra. Now that I have actually built on its about $2500.

    Guys...
    Many of us use a drag knife on occasion, but few know about one of the built in features of the WinCNC Controller, Tangential Knife Control.

    Here is a 5 minute video showing my first cuts on a tangential knife that I built. It uses standard sized utility knife blades, but I am using the higher priced Lenox Carbide Blades. It looks like speeds can be increased and still retain quality, at least in the double ply corrugated and Coroplast that I had on hand for the test cuts.

    Toolpaths are generated with VCarve Pro using a "WinCNC Knife" post processor. Earlier versions used a stepper motor, but they were losing steps due to the "bursts of pulses" that occur going around circles.


    Enjoy:

    That works very nicely, Gary. I agree with the comment on YT that a vacuum fixture would kick things up a notch...something with small holes and designed just for thin materials ideal to cut with a knife. The Donek drag knife guy has a video on how he setup for that...you've probably seen it.

    Thanks Jim. Yes I've known Sean since I visited his shop back in '12. Im working on a slightly modified BradyVac module to slide in the T tracks for cutting veneer.

    Another test to see how far the cut feeds could be pushed. With a level spoilboard and good material 450-500 ipm are attainable.
