Just wondering if anyone has tips on what bit to use for cutting quite fine detail in 1/8 plywood and probing xyz because I can’t use the touch probe as normal because of the thin stock
Sure you can use the probe. You can probe X and Y as usual, you should be able to register against the 1/8" material. Then flip the probe over and do Z just as you’d do with bit changes.
Thanks for that, I am still quite new and have lots to learn
BTW, on the bits, you’d generally want fine I’d assume. You can get 1/16" bits that have a 1/4" shank. They are fragile though, be nice to them. They may be small but they are not cheap. Not sure if you can find a 1/32" bit with a 1/4" shank (most seem to be 1/8" shank), you’d have to use an adapter and those can be hit or miss from what I’ve read.
I used a 1/32 bit with 1/8 shank……just made 3 passes……turned out really good
Thanks again for the help, much appreciated
Please share the exact bit you used in pictures some of us also want to know how to cleanly cut 1/8 plywood letters Etc thank you for your good question
