    Default Spoilboard HELP

    I have a 5'x10' Industrial CNC Router but can only find MDF board for the spoilboard in 4x8. We are new to the CNC thing and know absolutely nothing! Can we take 2 4x8 and piece them together to make them 5x10 or do we have to have a 5x10 sheet? We have a vacuum table. I know from research I need to surface the spoilboard and I have a surfacing bit but thats as much as I know. Any help, ideas, or tips is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    If your vacuum table is zoned (separated into sections), consider using a spoil board section over each segment/zone.

    MDF is very porous so you will need to seal the edges. There are many spoil-board references in this forum and many YouTube videos.

    Some photos of your machine would be useful.


    Cheers,

    You shouldn't have any problem with using a number of pieces for a spoilboard.Just remember to give the whole working area a light skim before running a job.You may be able to find 10X5 sheets if you look really hard,they are no fun to lift around.
