    CNC Issues

    Anyone know why the cuts in the x direction are so narrow? This is an inlay so all objects should be the same width.

    The fit left to right is pretty tight however, top to bottom is is very sloppy....

    First attempt at an inlay : FAIL

    Hi WWF,

    Any ideas on what I need to change in my setup to get a tighter fitting vbit inlay?

    My current thinking (uneducated) is that I need to swap from a 90 degree vbit to a 60 vbit.

    Cheers...
