Why is the wastboard size usually set to the cutting dimensions of the machine

Hey Gene, hey all,

I think it’s logical to make the wasteboard just as large that it can be trued by the CNC itself, but I’ve had similar thoughts about providing the remaining space outside of workarea with attachment options for clamps. For me it makes sense.

But if these fastening options or fences protrude higher than the wasteboard, you should know beforehand which bit diameter you will use for trueing wasteboard and subtract that, otherwise you’ll shave something off :slight_smile:.
