    Dose anyone have a file or know of a post with. The grid pattern for a Cobra ATC 5x8 vac top? My spoil board is getting thin and needs to be replaced. I would rather not have to shave it all the way down to the vacuum board. I have done this before. Just want to save time
    I want to glue the new spoil board around the different zones in the table. I just don't know exactly where they are.
    thanks in advance!

    There are s number of different variations of the vac plenum files that you may be better off to verify yours one time, draw it out and then save for the future.

      I have two CR-508 machines and I have cut a vacuum grind in both. If you look at my youtube page or my Facebook Photo page you will see videos and pictures of me cutting both.

      One machine is a 4 zone the other is a 5 Zone.

      I also have a link of pictures and such on this forum in the Cobra-X3 area.

      Post pictures as you make it.

          Thanks for responses. I already have the vacuum grid under the spoil board.
          The spoil board needs to be resurfaced. It also needs to be replaced. So what I was wanting to do was just resurface what is left of the thickness. Of the spoil board. Then just barley route the different zones out. Surface the new spoil board and glue it on. I was trying to stay away from surfacing the old board and glue off the plenum.
