Hi ronny

Not to take you away from this board, but if you go to http://www.woodworkforums.com/f170/  then you will find lots of info on this subject.

Now it works much better Russ, thanks. Before I only had it touching by 2 thou but as you mentioned I did not count for the side loads.

EJ I had the impression that MDF was perfect flat but you may be right. I was thinking to machine the table top but this will create a “pocket” and if later I want to work at the center of a long piece it will not sit flat on the table.

Hi Kolias
It really doesn't matter if you create a pocket when machining the table flat as you would almost certainly be using a spoil board of at least 3mm thickness, and this would raise the table surface again so that any long pieces would actually be above the actual table surface.

Ah, now I see it, but your link at the top of this page leads back to itself.
You want to change this.

I fail to see the poll

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Changing a comma to an apostrophe
« on: April 24, 2010, 10:00:11 PM »
Using the program written by German Bravo that is included within Mach3, I wanted to put an apostrophe into a name. The actual program does not allow for this; it does however have the ability to write a comma.

So, I reasoned that all I would need to do is add to the Y dimensions that the program generates and this would effectively move the comma to the top and make it an apostrophe.

This is not when happens. Whenever I try to do this, it just seems to make a big circular mess and I don't understand why.

Can anyone explain the correct way to go about this, or would I be better off just adding the apostrophe afterwards and resetting the X and Y to a new zero?

Also, because I doubt that I would ever have the need to use the Spanish inverted question mark, would it be possible to change the program and have the apostrophe instead of the inverted ?  ?
