    There's always a "work-around" to anyone willing to make an effort. Lucky for me I have that shipping option available.
    Thank you for the second set. I appreciate it.

    I haven't played with jog yet, but I'll keep that in mind. I just made a mental note to be sure my pieces were all equal when doing up one of those multi-piece slabs.

    The bodies are 13.195"...

    it was confusing at first. I had a pattern on the card at the time that was only 4" wide (neck) so that messed me up. I kept thinking, "why is it reading the wrong project?" After 3 or 4...

    I had to put down masking tape for the board sensor on the maple/wenge body. When measuring the width of the board, the sensor would stop at the wenge every time and report that that the board was...

    And for the record, the broken bit was 100% my fault. This wood is almost as hard as maple, and I was worried about the 1/16 carving bit breaking. So I put in the 1/8 carving it........without...

    a couple more tops completed. The one on the right is walnut with two maple strips in it. More learning on this one. The CW is not like a template where you pick the center. It picks the center so...

    Thanks
    It is birch so it would smell great in the fireplace, but I just can't do it. I'll fool the machine into finishing what it started. There's no great detail there, so as long as it comes out...

    Here's a picture of the carve when the bit broke. I can't abandon it, it's got too much potential. I'll find a way to finish the carve. Thanks for the suggestions everybody.

    Ok, so I do have the correct software then? So many different names, I wasn't sure if I had the right one or not. Thanks

    No, I don't have Pattern Modeling suite. It wasn't listed on the requirements for the pattern.

    REQUIRES:


    Project Designer PRO 3
    1/8" Long Carving Bit

  18. Designer Pro 3? Designer Pro? Designer 3?

    I'm confused over the software names.

    I bought a project from the CW pattern store. The requirements were "Designer Pro 3" and a "1/8" long carving bit". I thought I had both of those things,...

    You're saying the CW will cut more aggressively with a 3/16 bit in it? it will alter the programming? Nice.

    no fine detail to what I'm doing, just sweeping profiles. I'll go with the 3/16 for the harder woods.

    which is the best carving bit to use in hardwood? (maple) 1/16th or 3/16th?
  22. Recover a project after breaking a bit???

    Is there a way to back up a CarveWright after replacing a broken bit? I pushed the stop button, but I didn't shut the power off or abort the carve. I looked though & searched the old posts, saw...

    Yes, I saw that add. Probably one of the things that drew me in here.



    Thanks. I'm thinking there is a lot more to designing/building gear clocks than there is to building a guitar.
