Hi,

I ran my first job bigger than 18", It was actually several 48" pieces of molding, which is a long as my Stinger 1 will cut in the Y direction.

I'll look at the molding toolpath in VCarve and also try the other ideas.

I bought a 30 key pad to use with my Stinger 1 a while back, and most of the keys don't do anything. The x,y,z keys do work, and that was what I wanted most, so I never tried to program the others. ...

Nicely done!

I asked about the steel vs aluminum issue when I was there too. Sounded like the impetus for changing was mostly market driven and not performance related.

I didn't think about lowering the letters so they'd be encompassed by the pour. I was going to depend on a final brush coat for the letter tops, but maybe in the future I'll lower the...
