    Oooooooh. Good point.

    So. Is there a first pass or feed rate modification when using the long bits? I know about the breakage problem when using the 1/16" long bits with too deep a carve. ...

    A question occurred to me when reading this thread. Does the 1/16" LONG carving bit have a programmed pre-carve or extra slow feed rate so it doesn't try to carve 2" of material in one pass? I know...

    Couple of thoughts here;

    I've actually carved a lithopane from the stuff I sourced by "repurposing" a kitchen cutting board. It was about 1/2" thick. It carves OK but makes a lousy lithopane. It doesn't ball like...
