I use my 4000 to "carve" names in 1/4 Luan. I have a terrible problem with chatter regardless of the speed I am using to cut. The area I am working on hangs just past the end of my work surface and I move it along as I get close to the work surface edge. Is the free end of Luan hanging from the table edge causing the chatter or is the Multi-Purpose bit #561 too thick in diameter to cut such thin stock?
If I need to support my project better, are there any suggestions? The names are about 6 inches in height, so there isn't a lot of room in the area I am cutting. I am think of building a 12 inch by 12 inch "box" from 2x4s and laying the Luan on top of the box to provide support closer to the area I am cutting.
I would appreciate suggestions on supporting my work or which bit to use. Thanks!
