Cutting suede

Looking for some advice on settings for cutting suede without it curling up and burning straight away. I’ve looked around these forums but haven’t found much for suede settings at all. Thanks!

Is this actual suede leather, or fabric labeled as suede? How thick is the material?

If it’s 1-3oz sueded leather the PG thin leather setting should do just fine. If it’s outside that, you’ll want to do a bit of testing!


I’ve been able to cut my pig hide suede using the thin PG leather setting with minimal issues. If its fabric suede then i’d probably just do some testing (though i honestly probably wouldn’t cut that with my forge).
