    Another option to try is using the puffing tool on a 1/2" diameter circle and inverting it, as in this contest entry marble game: http://forum.carvewright.com/showthr...ghlight=marble


    You could also utilize the 1/2" ballnose bit in the full bit set, instead.

    Thank you, Connie!

    (Connie lives near the office and comes by to see me all of the time. She is the "creative & worker bee" behind her sister Mary's business. Pretty cool & unusual knowing someone else with my name.)

    Poor Connie... I am so so so so so so so blessed to live 10 mins from the LHR offices HAHAHAH. I should have a master's degree in Carvewright by now with just the knowledge Connie has given me.

    4. Watch the temp of the Flexshaft - if it feel more than warm to the touch where it curves at the top, you're gonna melt it. Get an infra-red thermometer to help you watch it (they're about $30 at HarborFreight).
    5. Learn the software - spend more time designing and reviewing your projects than carving on the machine. The machine is like a computer - "garbage in, garbage out" - it will only turn out what you design and tell it to turn out.
    6. After you screw up a project (and you will - in fact, more than one) try to learn why it didn't come out the way you planned...don't lay blame...anywhere....if you don't figure it out, you'll only make the same error over and over...you'll get frustrated, and won't be happy with your hobby.
    7. Enjoy the ride, and show off your accomplishments here - we love to see "newbies" have the "light go on".
    You mention Dust Collection System. I hooked up my collector to the port where the bag is supposed to go and pretty much nothing went that direction. Must be another way to do this? Someone posted about making a hood of some type. Open to ideas to keep it clean and working.

  10. Default close to connie too
