View Full Version : Material question for a newbie

I am new to the carvewright and as I have been reading some of the forum I have noticed some people using some very thick and hard woods. My question is about graphite sheets. The thickest I would be cutting is .100" Would that be possible? Thanks to anyone willing to answer.

By "graphite" sheets do you mean exactly that, or are you using carbon fibre sheets ?
Not familiar with the former, but carbon fibre is incredibly abrasive to the tool, in my experience, so you'll be doing a lot of bit changing. :(

And both a VERY conductive. I would say that conductive bits floating through the machine would not be good.
