If you need options for profile bits, not sure there's anyone with a larger selection of profiles in lots of sizes than Magnate.net. They have profiles I've never seen anywhere else.

Here is a molding I will be cutting next week. It uses a moulding toolpath and 2 profile toolpaths to get this profile. All of this is doable within V-Carve without the bother of transferring files...

Unless the moldings have some kind of carvings on them (like egg and dart, for example), then you may very well be able to use the moulding toolpath in VCarve to make your moldings directly. If you...

There are several calibrations that need to be performed on the recoil, plus it's helpful to add support to the rails to ensure they don't sag or wander left/right in the middle. Any error in...

Only thing that comes to mind would be if somehow you had an old parts file in the optimizer and didn't overwrite it with the new parts from the updated cutlist. I know something like that has...

I personally would not put the machine on casters. Years ago I had a CNC machine on locking casters and it just introduced vibration and movement. Would not do it again. I used shims under the legs...

Here's what I'd try:

1. You already have a vector that goes exactly around the component. Offset this by 1/16".
2. Create a pocket toolpath starting at 0 and going 1/2" deep with your 1/2" end...
