  1. i got a new toy & a new project, all in one!

    What will you be using to cut/rout the coroplast? If you try to use the router, it will shred and melt. We fought with cutting foam core and coroplast on our CNC for years. Finally, this year, we added an oscillating tangential cutter. It cuts almost every "soft" material perfectly. We print the...

    We have the Vanguard 4x8 flatbed for two years now and have been very happy with it. Good print quality, the ability to add more heads if business really takes off and the LED lamps sold us over the Oce. As with all these printers, daily maintenance is the key to success.

    We found that the lines from the pumps were clogged on our flatbed. Also found buildup and clogs in the sub tanks above the heads. It's messy, but you can use flush, disconnect both ends and flush it out.
  19. 6mm diebond machining tips

    We use o-flute aluminum bits from Onsrud or Amana and they work great. We climb cut and run at 18K at about 100 in/min. If you are experiencing the chips getting "welded" to the bit you are probably going too slow and building up too much heat.
