Re: profiling cores

Yes, start with manual jig and later do the jump to cnc.

A big table saw and planer are nice, but just needed to do your own (raw) cores. And for that matter you can use the machines at a (friends) workshop. Much more cheaper then to spend $$$ on these machines. Money is better invested into a cnc

Re: Happy Monkey's process

Thanks for reply! Didnt see that you updated the monkey site too. Great!!! Did you try that with ash or similar hardwood too? I do ask because we go a quite conservative route with cuts around 2mm deep for profiling (mainly ash - chrismp could answer that he did the postprocessor setup). But our fee...

Re: profiling cores

Thats the problem i learned several years ago. Tried to use a big Felder too, not usable. The problem is the pressure rollers are too far apart from the cutter roller, so as you say it lifts the core. I dded up 3 boards before i found out the problem ;) Its a great machine, i love to use it for maki...

How much you have to compensate core thickness for this layup?

Is it just torsionally stronger or does it affect the flex too?

Agree to Montucky. Did change to tilt router last season, its soo easy and quick ill never look back on all the other methods (including stationary tilted router table) i used. The small makita machine is nice for that.

Btw. i do it in one pass

I take the shortcut sometimes. Cleaning grind with 60-80, then stone. Need more passes with the stone but i dont have to change the belt. And i didnt see any difference.

Glue it down with hotglue when going trough the planer, works like a charm.

If you want to glue a outside wood stringer you dont need to get it off. You leave it, laminate and cut it off when finished / when you are cutting the outline
