    Default Machine limitations?

    I've had my awesome machine for about a month now. The postings here by all of the new and all of the experienced owners has been invaluable. Thanks to everyone for sharing! I have a couple of questions as a new guy with this machine.

    1) What is the limitation to carve depth? I know the machine will accept a workpiece 5" thick, but how deep can I carve into it? And, what is the thickest piece that I can create a cutout through?

    2) Does the color/darkness of wood affect the infrared sensor? I had a scrap piece that was painted brown. I wanted to see the effect of a pre-finished piece, that was then then routed. But, I kept getting the error "Clear Sensor". I cleaned the sensor several times, ran through the checks listed in the manual, and had no success. Then, I tried a piece that was not pre-finished, and the sensor worked fine. Was it the darkness of the piece or the paint that made the infrared sensor fail?

    Thanks again everybody, and I hope to be an experienced contributor to the forum someday!

    Question #1
    The depth of cut is 1" , that is if your bit can cut up to 1".
    The carving bit has a cutting area of 3/4", so If you have no feather on your carving it would be 3/4".with a feather, it's 1".

    Question 2
    Yes the color does make a difference, put a piece of tape on it and procede.

    This is NOT the area to post in if you are having problems with your machine. Please repost in troubleshooting section, more people will see it there too and you are likely to get some help.
    Happy carving , Jeff Birt

  9. Default Looking to Purchase

    I am interested in finding out if the CarveWright will reproduce Antique Furniture molding and small molding from old homes. They are always missing pieces from furniture. Is there anyone out there that has done this yet? Is it possible to place a 5" wide piece of walnut in and get 5 pieces of separate trim molding out?
    thanks

    Hey refinisher
    Welcome , and yes you can reproduce moldings etc. But you will need the probe accessory in order to do that. 299.00 . As far as the molding side by side , if your talking about scanning one molding and then duplicating it , you can. It would depend on if your scanning or designing it yourself, and also you can design in other programs like Corel. I don't have a probe myself , but thats what it is for, and I a'm sure anyone that has one can help .
