Is there a risk of the honeycomb bed developing rust if I clean it with water- or is there a really good way to get the cells clean?
The cells have developed so much crud, especially in the areas where they are right above those little supports, that I’m getting flames from cuts on material that has never flared at all in a year of use. It seems like the flares are only happening when I have vertical cuts that follow the honeycomb supports. I tried clearing those out as best I could, but still got a flare on the next vertical cut that followed the support. The flames are small, but are leaving me with a sooty lens after every job.
I usually vacuum the bed, and use a dry pipe cleaner and pick to remove the little pieces of material that get stuck in the cells, but that doesn’t seem to be enough now.
I initially thought this problem was due to leftover dust from cutting a thin piece of laser rubber over the weekend, but I’ve vacuumed the bed twice since then.
