Thread: A few MDF bits

  1. #1
    Not as exciting as some of these stuff in this section, but its a start - with the machine running flawlessly!!

    few bits for the kids and couple lads at work for theirs.

    Looks great, seems to finish the mdf well, did you have to sand it to clean up the edges and flat spots?

    Cheers, The only sanding that was done was from the hold down tabs ;) it's a little fluffy but not massively.

    I will experiment with one at some point with PVA glue to seal it/sand it/ then paint it with the kids.

    Nice looking signs, what spindle speed were you running at ?

    You've got to seal it becasue I believe it gives off formaldehyde gas, also if left bare it acts as a breeding ground for mould etc.

    Oh well I can't give the kids them yet!! Looks like that's my job.

    I'm not sure that the spindle was running at if im honest as I'm new to the VFD but said 3100

    Bits used were a 6mm 2 flute end mill for pocketing and profiling then a 90 degree 19mm V bit to also clean the profile lines up down 1mm

    I got one of these to check my own spindle and to calibrate the vfd display, works great.

    Your "bits" look great. I never seem to get MDF as clean as that straight off the machine - usually a bit fluffy.Well done. G.
