Rx FOR MACHINING WOOD: PRACTICAL TIPS AND TROUBLESHOOTING DEFECTS

By: Eugene Wengert, President: The Wood Doctor's Rx, LLC

Quality loss due to machining issues can be very expensive.  If the piece must be discarded, this is expensive because the wood piece has a great deal of processing time and effort (translated as money) into it prior to the development of a defect.  If the defective piece is repairable, the time and effort of making the repair is expensive.  Some machining defects are due to poor drying (including incorrect MC).  Some defects are due to characteristics or properties of the wood itself (such as tension wood or grain angle).  Some defects are due to machine issues (feed speed, knife angels, etc.).  The basics of wood machining are discussed so that the attendee can easily zero in on the basic causes of the defects.

Come here more about this subject at the "Rx for Machining Wood: Practical Tips and Troubleshooting Defects" session at IWF 2016.
