edge engraving was created by Woodsmith
I have an 840 machine and wonder if it is possible to engrave the vertical edge of a 50mm thick 300mm dia chopping board
with lettering....am I asking the impossible for a flat bed machine with only 3 axis ?

You'd need an extra build of a 4th axis (a rotary table - like this ) plus the spindle adapter which holds a proxxon with a 90° angle. this one

With some tweaking of machine parameters and the g-code you would not even need special programs.

SC 420 mit DIY parallel + Proxxon mit Mod + HF500 + SprintLayout + LibreCAD/QCAD + FreeCAD +WinPC starter/USB->EstlCAM + EstlCAM LPTAdapter + EstlCAM Handrad + DIY Vakuumtisch

Gruß, Andreas
