CNC is probably taking fine cuts. I tend to have less than ideal cutters and take too much material, so double sided tape probably won’t work for me. :)

I guess they use the mdf so it sticks good. My table would never be oil free, so the mdf makes sense.

But, it obviously works! :thumbs:

It's actually hogged out of a billet with the same setup. It's not production work so they aren't taking huge cuts but still surprises me when I see them do that.

I guess the point is the only clamps I've ever seen them use are toe clamps. I think the MDF is taped to the table also.

They do nice work.

This 6061 guy has great videos. After getting half way through my pie cut project I found this. Probably won’t build it.

I want to make some cuts on parts and need a bigger lathe (more swing).

I might just do this:

I like the idea of using an old saw blade.

I looked at his YT channel (Make Everything Workshop). Some interesting stuff.

Lots of good content on YT.

This louver machine is pretty good, no pre-slicing. His assistant isn’t as pretty as the one above.
