It took a few tries to get my feeds and speeds right with the MDF layups. I was looking for the right combination of speed and chip size. Huge thanks to Dan, Pier 9 CNC Master Chief.
Sometimes, opening the doors of the DMS reveals a ridiculous pile of chips, resembling a fuzzed-out MD5 dust mountain. This is before we had the fancy dust-collection integrated into the DMS.
Cleaning up the chips and dust was felt like uncovering an archeological relic.
Since these photos were taken, I have definitely improved my CNC technique and I now pause the pass to clean up so I can see the tool head operating. These photos were among the first I took when learning the ins and outs of the DMS.
