I am thinking about getting carbon fiber plate so that I can replace quad parts on the fly (no pun intended). I have a couple of questions:
1) if cutting with appropriate bits, do I need to seal the sides after cutting or does it come out pretty clean?
2) this is the big one: safety. I understand that the shredded CF is nasty stuff. How do you stay safe? I figure that I will wear a respirator and try to get it vacuumed up however, I know that there will be some residual stuff around. What precautions have you (you being anyone who has CNCed CF) taken?February 21, 2017 at 8:38 am #28097
I would assume its comes out clean. You can use water, even a squirt bottle and keep it very wet. easiest, safest way is to keep it just under water in a small container of some kind.February 21, 2017 at 10:21 am #28102
I never thought about cutting underwater. Wouldn’t there be a risk of damaging me spindle though?February 21, 2017 at 10:41 am #28103
More at risk than usual but not by much. I have some water cutting videos up and there are tons of others.February 21, 2017 at 8:07 pm #28138
Dui, ni shuo de duiParticipant
What kind of bit are you supposed to use to cut Carbon fiber?
Would a regular wood bit work?February 22, 2017 at 4:32 am #28152
Nope. It would tear up the fiber. You’d need one like this.
