It seems each time I design a project, I wind up switching cutters for the final cutout of the design. My question is if I use tabs (minimum of four, do you think the project will remain still if I run the cutout file along with other files that use the same cutter. An example might be like the one pictured. The material is 5x12x1/2 inch thick. Router bits used include a 1/8th spiral cutter that cuts the groove, and clears out the waste in the name, and does the final cutout of the design. Then there is a 60 deg flat tip that does the work on the text to clean it up and carve the year. I guess I could answer my own question if I just go for it on a piece of scrap, huh? It sure would help cut down on bit changes since I am the bit changer!
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
