I considering buying a table (max material cutting size is 1200mm x 800mm x 90mm). The website indicates the blade holder specfications are 3.175mm, 4mm & 6mm. Does this mean that the minimum router bit size I can use with this machine is 3.175mm? Basically, I want to cut narrow straight slots in a sheet of MDF and I need them to be as narrow as possible. Does this mean that this machine cannot cut slots more narrow than 3.175mm?
Finally, the sheet of MDF would be 30mm thickness. If the machine was to router/engrave completely through the sheet e.g to a depth of 30mm, would the cut be straight and clean with no tool marks on the cut sides of the MDF? Would a router bit with a thickness of 3.175 struggle to do this?
I need to find a way of cutting a sheet of MDF which the dimensions 2500mm x 1250mm x 30mm, into strips 12mm wide.
The cut surfaces must be totally free from tool marks and the strips of MDF must be cut completely straight with 90 degree edges. I’ve obviously considered using a cicular saw but that would leave some saw marks on the material (importantly, it would not be possible to sand the MDF after cutting).
Is it possible to do this with a
