Hi Bill

Nice pieces did you make there.
I have a couple questions if I may.
What sort cutter did you use?
What size?
What feedrate?
What spindle speed?
How did you fix the inlays on your machine?
Did the wood not break on the edges and special on the topends?
Did the cutter turn against the feed direction or with the feed direction?
How thick was the inlay material?

I was thinking it was impossible to cut so extreme Small pieces.

Greetings:
Willem

Do you cut these on a 4 axis mill ? Do you cut out the inserts as well ? Some v good work there and the accuracy seems spot on no obvious gaps anywhere.

Perfo

everythig is done with the same milling machine including the threaded pin using differant setups. no V carving used. the rubber bumper is from an outside source.

Nice work. I'm not sure what v carving means I must be honest. I'm in the process of converting a mill and this is the kind of work I'd love to be able to do particularly copper/brass inlays in furniture and seeing your work mean at least I know it is possible to acheive the kind of results I'm after.
