Re: triple edge finder

I have not but I have seen videos of people using it on other machines and software. I can't find any for the Vectric software. You may need to contact them to ask.

Re: Feeds and Speeds

Speeds and Feeds depend on what you actually want to cut. As an example, if you have a 15" square and want to cut at 150 IPM it may cut that fast, but slow down when making turns. If you have a nice 2.5d carving and you're using a 1/16" or 1/32" tapered ball nose and try running at that speed, it r...
