SAWING
Carbide tipped blades are recommended for both circular and table saw cutting requirements. A steady feed rate should be used. Smoke, or a burning odor indicates the need for a faster feed rate. A proper feed rate combined with a sharp saw blade will yield coarse sawdust ejected from the sawblade. All sawing should be done dry.

MILLING, ROUTING & MACHINING
Carbide cutters are recommended with steady feed rate. Smoke, or a burning odor indicates the need for a faster feed rate. A proper feed rate combined with sharp cutters will yield coarse sawdust. All milling, routing, and machining should be done dry.

DRILLING AND TAPPING
High speed steel will perform very well for short production runs and shallow depth holes. Carbide tipped drills and taps are recommended for deeper holes, and longer production runs. Wherever possible, the material should be backed by an identical piece of scrap material to prevent chipping around the holes. Lift the drill frequently to remove all chips and prevent a buildup of excess heat. Drill Dry.

SANDING AND BUFFING
Sanding is accomplished by belt, disc, or hand. Sand with traditional wood sanding techniques. Dry sanding is recommended. A fine luster can be realized by buffing with jewelers or polishing rouge applied with a soft cloth or rag wheel.

BONDING
Successful bonding can be achieved by means of standard two part epoxy compounds or polyurethane glue.
