What bit do you use to carve stars and what settings and depth do you use? I currently use a 90vbit with a depth of .25. Are there any others? Just curious what others are using.
For my flags, which are 355mm (14") wide, the stars have a width of 11mm (.4331"), and I set a flat depth of 2mm (.0787"). The bit I have found that works great is a Whiteside SC50 which is a “22° Carving Liner” having a “pencil tip”, or basically a near zero flat tip end. Using a V-Carve path, the tips of the stars are crisp and clearing the middle of the stars doesn’t take too much more time. At 1300mm/m (~50") each start takes about 25 seconds.
