Door parts on pod and rail1/4
I think I may have already answered my own question, but just in case I'm missing something I'm still going to ask.
Do I need to run both a CW and CCW cope head to prevent tear out on my rails?
I believe I do. Does anyone have any experience with this?
watch the video and call BVC I had a few cups for our old pod and rail stuff is great
See how it was cut ?
Watch the Biesse video below between 1:42 and 2min. You can see the spindle direction changes from CW to CCW while lowering to the CCW side of the stick cutter. If you do not want to final size the parts you are making you will find the CCW cutter will avoid tearout. I am just a small shop, but I make cab doors on my cnc with pods.
I do not think they are using a CCW cutter in the BVC video. There does not appear to be two stick cutters hanging on the tool rack.
Thinking of the BVC example more they used fixtures for all the parts from below so a CW cutter would have worked fine for both sticks because you can cut all sides. Tearout is removed by completing the long grain cuts for the final passes. The parts I make are too narrow to fixture that way comfortably.
Cabinetmaker and Brad,
Thanks for sharing those links with me.
I had done a fair amount of searches on youtube looking for videos and those did not come up.
Thanks once again,
